ZYRA SPACE SHIP
Description: Introduced in 1951 to take advantage of Paramount's release of "When Worlds Collide", Zyra was Wilmot Mansour's first venture into spaceship modelling.

The kit was promoted with this enthusiastic salute to the space age: “Just as the atomic age has begun, so the day when mall first leaves the earth and travels to the stars is nearly with us. Already rockets have travelled 250 miles away from the earth's surface, and although latest developments are shrouded in offical secrecy, the fact that the Americans have a Government sponsored project for projecting and building a space platform which will assume its own orbit round the earth, shows that it is already within the immediate bounds of possibility to overcome the earth's gravitational pull. When this is done, there is every reason to believe that within a few years, rockets piloted by radar will sail away into space, orbit the moon, and return to earth with sufficient data to enable us to begin building the first man-carrying spaceship.

“In view of this, films like the Paramount picture "When Worlds Collide" and models of space ships based on available technical data, will help to bring to the public new vistas opening to the whole of mankind.”
