ROCKET SHIP KIT - ARCHER - USA

A winged V-2 style plastic rocket ship kit comprising nine pieces. The box back includes a cut-out of a launching platform. Window box 7"x15". The cut-out accounts for the destruction of many of the boxes. The similarity of the rocket to the one in the 1950 film Destination Moon is perhaps no coincidence. The ROCKET SHIP AND SPACE MEN SET is featured in the Blackwell Wielandy catalog for 1952.

The rocket was offered in other elusive combinations with Archer figures.
SPACE MEN AND ROCKET SHIP KIT - the seven original Archer figures plus rocket in a window box.
ROCKET SHIP AND SPACE MEN - five figures and rocket in a window box.
