Superman Model Ad

Now here's a rarely seen but extremely cool 1962 comic strip ad for the classic SUPERMAN punching through a wall model kit that lasted throughout the sixties. The Curt Swan (with George Klein?) art makes it particularly special don't you think?

    1962 ad, Steve? On the bottom right corner it says 1964, which
    is about when I remember this series of Aurora models first appearing.
    Not that it mattered; I could only
    look at them longingly, as money
    for 12 cent comics was hard enough to come by. Models and other toys
    were only dreams to be wished for.
    But, I agree, the art sells the
    product! For my money (real or imagined) Curt Swan IS Superman!
