OSC Pegasus Launch Vehicle
Skill Level 4
Introducing our newest addition to the TMRK lineup. Third in our “Master
Series” of scale kits (joining our Jupiter C & our Aries Fat Albert), this is a
1:20 scale model of the OSC Pegasus Launch Vehicle as prepped & launched on its
first commercial flight. This kit flies on a cluster of three 24mm motors, such
as C11’s, D12’s, and E9’s. It can also be flown on a variety of composite single
use and re-loadable 24mm motors with short delays (requires three identical
motors per flight).
The kit includes laser-cut aircraft ply centering rings, metallic lined motor
tubes, laser cut basswood fin bases, pre-shaped leading and trailing edge
aileron stock, TTW fin mounts, pre-weighted nose cone, 24” rip-stop chute, and
wet-n-slide decals. This model rocket kit is the finest replica of the Pegasus
we’ve ever seen.
This kit also includes a high-quality frame-able 8 ˝ x 11 exploded-view full
color print of the Pegasus (XL configuration). Designed around a heavy duty
2.63” airframe with a wing span over 13” and a total length of over 30 ˝“, this
exceptionally scaled & detailed kit is sure to get attention with its accurate
detailing and realistic flight profile.
This is not a difficult kit to build, but with all the pieces & detailing, don’t
expect to throw this together in one evening! We are rating this at a Skill
Level 4 – Very Challenging, though conceptually it’s nothing more than a
three-finned rocket with some unique detailing you have to assemble and then
attach to the main airframe.

|C11-3, D12-3 (First Flight), E9-4, E15-4 or F12-5
All 2-3/4" engines will require a 1" spacer to be inserted
into each engine tube prior to inserting the engines. The engine tubes are
3-3/4" long to facilitate holding the longer E9-4 motors. Most people just cut
1" segments off a spent D or E (24mm) motor.
