SPACE EXPLORER X-705 - TPS - JAPAN

A blue tinplate lithographed friction powered space vehicle that is borderline saucer. The shape is most unusual: the vehicle is a flattened oval with a lithographed dome depicting two pilots. Two large wheels are set into the side and two small fins are set on the back. There are two slight wheel litho variations.

A tinplate orbiting space cadet astronaut is attached by a metal wire to the center. Toplay Friction Powered Space Explorer with Flying Space Man.
