Hello to everyone!
In an attempt to keep my mind busy, I have currently been in the process of refining, developing, & improving my earlier custom Rescue Air Bag designs. This is the most recent generation known as Gen-Seven which stands for the seventh generation of modifications, & improvements being utilized in production by WHB Rescue Equipment Systems USA. These are pictures of the latest designs that will be shipped to some of the UK's most distinguished Playmobil fire brigades to be put into daily use. The newly improved Gen-Seven Tanker Leak Seal Kits are labeled "Gener-Eight Tanker Leak Seal Kits", because they're an eighth tanker leak suppression design series, & are the latest designs developed to assist the Playmobil fire/rescue units with Haz-Mat leak incidents.
I hope everyone enjoys the photo's.

Thank you, Playmofire, Little Jo, LHAAP, & Gepetto for your positive reviews! I should explain that the air bags on the left side are the ones that are inflated to be used in action rescue photo stories, & the ones on the right side are the deflated to be used in photo stories showing vehicle equipment content.

Thank you Peetje! I plan to do a rescue photo story using these air bags, & some of TJW Industry's rescue tools in the near future, so keep checking the story telling board  ;)!

Hello Peter,
Thank you for your interest!  I am really not trying to copy any manufacturers design, but using my own designs in production. I used VETTER/HURST, & PARATECH air bags when I was a firefighter years ago. Holmatro hydraulic rescue equipment was just being introduced in this country, & was not very popular in that time. There are 18 air bags that are inflated to be used in rescue photo stories, & the other 18 flat ones are used in rescue vehicle storage photos. BTW, I like your air bag design very much, too!
