Greetings, minatour87!

As for parts availability, go with SEMROC . You can match up every part on the Arrow 300 from his catalog. Attached below is a representaion using RockSim 9. I think it is very close to at least one variation that saw production.

The Arrow 300 was similar to the Comanche III, but used a class of engines that just don't exist today. Estes went with a 24mm first booster to compensate for the lack of 18mm engines with enough power to move the rocket off the pad. You will need to do the same when you try to fly this model. There are just no 18mm boosters available with the needed power.
