Z-26 CRAGSTAN FRICTION FLYING SAUCER WITH ASTRONAUT - YOSHIYA - JAPAN

Tin lithographed friction crank action flying saucer. A boxy tin pilot pilot sits under a clear plastic dome. The pilot has Z-26 printed on his chest and this is also printed on the edge.

The Z-26 saucer is based on the X-15 pressing but with two rear tailfins and a rectangular slightly domed red plastic spark window behind the dome.

Produced in silver-grey and a rarer light blue version, both with central a red section moving to a point at the front. The light blue has been seen with red and blue fins.

The box carries the Cragstan distributor's logo. It appears in the 1965 Yoshiya catalog, along with the X-15 Space Commander Ship.
