A red lithographed tinplate flying saucer based on Nomura's earlier saucer of the same name. The friction saucer has a set of wheels below, two angled side fins, a red spark panel at the back and an astronaut pilot sitting under a clear plastic dome. The number X-505 is marked on each side. The dome is appreciably taller than the Nomura. Friction action with spark. The construction of the saucers reveal much cost-cutting and reuse of material. Asia Two versions are known, one (top) with a Yoshiya style square bodied astronaut marked K-8 on the chest. The other (bottom) has the squat rounded Nomura style. The two versions have slight litho differences. The same design is also used for later Ne-Kur saucers.
