INTERPLANETARY ROCKET - YONEZAWA - JAPAN

An elaborately lithographed tinplate and plastic battery operated rocket. The silver rocket has a small red nose cone and a large yellow plastic rocket motor assembly at the rear that rotates. The rocket has a bump and go action the stops. The rocket rises up and the nose assembly opens to reveal the Apollo capsule. This was an effective attempt to reflect in toy form some of the complexity of the Apollo moon landing program.
