ATOMIC ROCKET X-1800 - BLUE & WHITE VERSION - MASUDAYA - JAPAN

One of Masudaya's tin battery operated space ships with a non-fall action. Rear tail fin and two conical engines on the side. A metal rocker in the base detects edges and alters the direction of the rocket.

The front cockpit has no astronaut: there is a patterned windshield containing a color light effect. Light blue and white with red detailing and cream engines. Large grey plastic rotating antenna, though the white antenna (bottom) looks more like the one on the box. Marked X-1800
Triangular tailfin.

This version does not have lights in either side. The plainer litho detailing with three litho portholes and the fresnel lense-like cockpit cover make this a more serious looking spaceship
The box carries the serial no. 1883 MT/191
On sale in October 1960. Modern Toys.
