Project Sword Annual (1968)

Century 21, the production company behind the Gerry Anderson puppet shows, were also behind the Project Sword brand. There was a very popular toy line.  I think there was a comic for a while and then there was this one annual and a couple of activity books.
The inside is a thing of beauty and, as a painting, the cover is quite striking in and off its self.  What I find odd though is that given the fantastic futuristic design work of your average Project Sword vehicle, why is it that the big old silver spaceman on the front looks just like something NASA was using at the time.  Bit of a shame that!
