Captain Video and his Sister

I spent a good amount of my youth watching TV, shows like Howdy-Doody, Sky King, Roy Rodgers and recycled cartoons from the 1920s (Farmer Al Falfa and his Terrytoon Pals).

But my favorite was a Space series called Captain Video and his Video Rangers.

It was
I decided to built my own spaceship in the back yard, fitted my craft with a cockpit and a steering wheel. I believe I used clock faces as the instrumentation. I have no idea why it had a rope attached, perhaps that day it doubled as a boat.
My sister manned the spaceship as I did some rocket engine repair
