APOLLO ROCKET - OHTA - JAPAN

Silver lithographed tin friction powered Apollo rocket. The detailed rocket has three red tin fins and a long nose extension.

Friction action. When rocket hits an obstacle an arm is triggered making it stands up. A ramp descends revealing a litho spaceman. The box artwork is a particularly impressive depiction of the rocket in space.

K in circle Logo. Looks to be the same pressing as for the Masuya versions of this popular design. It is not clear which came first.
