JUPITER ROCKET - YOSHI - JAPAN

Yoshi's approach to rocket design is quite different from the other manufacturers. This is a green and red jet-like tin friction rocket with two small wings at the rear and two very small tiny stabilizing fins at the front. There is a single tailfin. The friction mechanism is attached below the rear, with no attempt to hide it. Marked JUPITER with a USAF star. Y in Diamond. Box? Date?
