Is there a Clone of the Estes Pegasus #0806?
 
This a was jet fighter/drone style kit I built (poorly) as middle schooler. My model rocket is long since lost. This is a classic Mike Dorffler design.

Has anyone over the years re-released it or issued a clone of it? It seems a little complicated to scratch build.

Thanks in advance!

Oh, I think you could clone one without too much trouble - the plans/scans are here in Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe and Tango Papa has full waterslide decal sets for $12 - Stickershock has cut vinyl in the original size up to 7 diameter upsized!

That morerockets kit is a BT-20 body tube and comes with an 18 parachute. That is going to be a pain to pack recovery gear. Id upscaled it and use decals from one of the mentioned providers. (Tango Papa will do upscales, he did my decals for an upscaled Orbital Transport.)

Esquire, Jimz has the plans listed as well,

Or buy the repop kit from,

Id recommend you 86 the 18 diameter plastic chute though. Or use a thin-mil nylon chute in it, like a real cool rotofoil chute from,

I cloned this rocket years ago when I became a full time BAR back in 2008.
I upscaled to a BT-55 tube, the wings could not take the weight.
My conclusion was a special plastic coupler that would allow you to bind the wings to the BT tube.

Estes Pegasus 0806 RockSim file
 
I found a 1.00X RockSim file that may help upscale projects:
