Alca #234 Space Ship

Today's post is gonna be a little shorter than most because I don't know much about what I have  :-)  I picked this up from a seller in the UK and it was most probably made during the Golden Age of Space Toys (ca 1928 - 1957), specifically sometime during the 1950s - my bet is early 1950s - by Alca Capell of Barcelona, Spain. While the design is a variation of the Tudor Rose/Pyro X-100 Space Ship does anyone else out there get the impression that it looks like a dolphin? I'm also having feelings of Gerry Anderson Stingray deja vu'. Enjoy!
