Polaris Nuclear Sub

What's the ad for?
Polaris Nuclear Sub
Spotted in
Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen # 140, DC comics
The scoop
Seeing this ad make you instantly thing of a rip-off. "Sturdily constructed of 200 lb. test material". Yeah it's called cardboard. Then I found this photo over at and it changed my tune. Sure the Polaris Nuclear Sub  was made of cardboard and maybe the torpedoes didn't actually fire. Did the controls really work and what did they control? What about the periscope? Sometimes none of this kind of stuff matters. I mean look at that kid...he looks happy to me.
