    I just bought one and am I the only one that thinks this looks like a Klingon ship from Star Trek! And thanks to aftermarket decals mine will be! FOR THE GLORY OF THE EMPIRE!

    cool little rocket. laser cut pieces are perfect, but the balsa was really soft and i busted a couple of the pieces while sanding. lot of sanding and filling with the tongue in groove joints, which makes this one a little time consuming if you sweat the details. very zen. two things bother me about this package; the display paint job (unimaginative and ugly) and the nose cone. am i the only one that thinks that bubble nose cone thing looks stupid? also, the picture on the package is a graphic, not a real build. silly.

    Crowd pleaser

    Everyone including me loves the looks of this model. It takes some time to build and paint to a good finish, it is well worth it. I fly it almost every launch. I also have converted it to mylar streamers,

    A rewarding build for drag racing.

    I’ve enjoyed building these smaller rockets with interesting designs and great looks. The Puma, like the Scorpion and Lynx, offers a bit more challenge than a standard small build, but the results are rewarding. Actually the Puma is the easiest to assemble of the three in this series, but just as sharp in its looks. I found one adjustment to the instructions. The 1/8″ dowel should be cut in three 1.5″ lengths versus 1.0″ otherwise the build sequence was easy to follow. I’m looking forward to drag racing these three together on A10-3Ts.
