I’ve read and enjoyed the book.

The “artist’s conception” pictures of spacecraft that appeared in these ads, backed up by a little educated speculation by the engineering staff, lead to the design of several classic model rockets. Olde-Time rockets nuts will remember the Mars Snooper and the Mars Lander. Others such as the SST Shuttle and Trident may have been inspired by aerospace image ads.
