Have you ever seen this one? I got it recently and it's not marked except with a Patent Number on the underside. Looks like something originally attached to the one side. The fins look similar to Gilmark, etc. Perhaps this is Reliable from Canada? Thought somebody here might know.
By way of introduction, I've been collecting space toys since 1953, and am a collector of German mechanical toys, and have always tried to find the rare German space toys in Europe/U.K. since the 1970's. I will post some photos from my collection eventually. I don't, however, collect Japanese space toys usually as a rule, as I try to keep it to U.S. and German manufacture to narrow down my focus. I'm working on a book about German space toys and the German space program dating back to the 1930's to about 1969.

Actually the Aliens are quite different and have a peg on the feet to fit into the holes in the bottom of the command bridge.
I will be posting more photos of rare space toys from my collection soon and am looking forward to any additional information I can find out about them to include in my upcoming book.
