VOYAGEUR INTERPLANETAIRE - GPM (G. PASCAL MOSSE) - FRANCEClassic shaped diecast metal space gun with a long, thin telescopic sight, fins on the barrel and a glass lens at the tip. Battery operated flashlight action. The gun has been seen in green, gold, blue, yellow and red versions. 7.5"

The basic version of the gun has just two wires that connect directly to a battery. Pressing the trigger operates the flashlight. The white button at the side switches the light on permanently.

The more complex version has four wires. A battery held in a leather pouch powers the control box. The gun attaches by wire to the control box. The box has a gold dial with the wording ATOMIC LILLIPUT. There are seven electrical connection points. Two marked RECEPTION go to the battery, three marked PISTOLET go to the gun, and two marked EMISSION go to the helmet.

There are at least four sets:
1 Gun, battery holder and Morse card.
2 The above plus a leather holster, belt and wooden target.
3 As 2 with additional metal control box and a white leather harness to allow it to attach to the chest.
4 The largest set includes a lighted helmet and white gloves. leather vest, wrist and ankle cuffs and a space map. This set would include all the items shown in the box artwork. The helmet was probably packed separately.

The set is made of white leather with contrasting trim. Red, blue and green are known with matching helmets. There may be yellow and gold examples.

The box artwork shows a gun which is unlike the one currently known. It may suggest an earlier unknown version. Only diecast guns have been located so far. The gun and spacesuit feature on the cover of a 1954 French toy trade magazine.
