KTI Cartoon Space Ship

Okay, this is going to be a fairly short post. This spaceship is from the firm of KTI, but I don't know if KTI is a Japanese firm or a Hong Kong firm. It can be anywhere from mid-1950s to 1960s vintage. The cartoon characters are totally unfamiliar to me but if I had to bet (not much though - I'm cheap) I'd say this was Japanese. It measures 9 1/4" (23.5cm) L x 3 3/4" (9.5cm) wingspan x 3 1/2" (8.9cm) H. Enjoy!


  1. 'KTS' is the Tatsuya Trademark, could it be a variant; 'KT International', as 'International' seems to be a favoured suffix on export ware?


  2. Hugh, the source I have states Tatsuya's trademark was 'KTS' within a circle. It is probably Japanese though (look at the artwork on the rear fins, that guy with the jet pack looks like Japanese animation artwork)
