Tin lithographed friction crank action flying saucer. A boxy tin pilot pilot sits under a clear plastic dome. The pilot has Z-26 printed on his chest and this is also printed on the edge. The Z-26 saucer is the same as the X-15 pressing but with two rear tailfins and a rectangular slightly domed red plastic spark window behind the dome. The box has an illustration of the Yoshiya X-15 saucer with simply the writing changed to Z-26. In this case the saucer now has the correct number of fins, two, shown on the box. Produced in silver-grey and a rarer light blue version, both with central a red section moving to a point at the front. The light blue has been seen with red and blue fins. The box carries the Cragstan distributor's logo. It appears in the 1965 Yoshiya catalog, along with the X-15 Space Commander Ship. The saucer appears in a newspaper ad dated November 1962.
