First of all thank you for your answers.

- I contacted Novag and they will send to me a copy of the user guide. So i do not need your help anymore on the subject.

- they can't help me for the black bishop. 

- I know I can buy a full set of Mephisto Pieces by Niggeman but this set does not look fine (especially the knight).

So again a double question:

- has anybody one or two black/brown bishop as a spare part with a size of around 6 cm high (looking more or less like the bishop I have on the picture - including Fidelity Elite Avant Garde or Novag pieces). I am happy to pay for it or exchange it against a chess computer.
- I would like to find only 2 bishops to keep as much as possible the Novag set and its style. But if not possible: Is there a place where I can buy a full set of Citrine pieces. (At least it is not in Niggeman).

- As a last possibility, I will buy a Kasparov President set by Niggeman. But I would like to try other possibilities first.

Thank you again to all of you, this is a great forum.

I can send a photocopy of the English manual if you are unable to get a scanned one. The Constellation Forte manual on Alain's site should be very similar.

i have a scanned version of the German manual, if this helps?

If you are unable to get an Expert black bishop the Fidelity Elite A/S and Avant Garde ones are also 6 cm.

And the pieces for Mephisto Exclusive should also work fine...

Hello.

I had a similar problem a little while back with my Novag Super VIP. I wrote Novag an email explaining the situation and they sent  me a completely new chess set free of charge! They seem to be a very helpful company.

You may also have seen that another person on this forum only just recently had a very slight problem with their Novag Citrine and again Novag appeared to be helpful.

Send them an emal and see what they say......

I cannot seem to find the manual. Sorry.

Incidently, she looks a lovely machine!

Peter.

I just bought an incompete Novag Constellation expert like this one http://www.schach-computer.info/wiki/index.php/Novag_Constellation_Expert
But I am looking for one missing part: a black bishop, 6 cm high .



I am also looking for a copy of the user manual.

It's worth a trial...
