That sounds promising. Estes, Quest, or one of the smaller companies could produce a detailed scale Pegasus or Pegasus XL kit, which could--like the Citation Bomarc--be either parachute (or streamer) recovered, or could be a rear-motor boost-glider (with a rear-ejection, parachute- or streamer-recovered internal motor pod).
