CRAGSTAN FLYING SAUCER - JET SMOKE VERSION - YOSHIYA - JAPAN
Red tinplate flying saucer. The saucer has a central dome with a slightly oriental looking tin astronaut pilot. Behind the astronaut is a spark window crescent shaped section. At the back are two metal exhaust pipes. The saucer has a stop and go action with space noise and flashing lights. It then stops and smoke emerges from the rear jets. Twin angled antennas tipped with plastic. This is similar to FLYING SAUCER WITH SPACE PILOT but lacking the coiled spring antenna. KO

Two box versions are known, one has the Jet Smoke wording and Cragstan logo, the other has this feature crossed out and does not have the Cragstan logo. The smoke version appears in the 1962 Cragstan Industries catalog.
