First I thought that this is conversion of the jump crash mat from the rescue jump team (3881), but yours is quite smaller and more handy for the purpose you had in mind.
Did you build the airbag by your own or is this piece of equipment "lend" from somewhere else?

completely off topic an a bit late but i have found a crash mat like that last week.
I Thought it wasn't PLAYMOBIL...

Does someone has a better picture ot te set?? 3881 or the mat??

It is the inside of the jump mat that Tim has used.

You can find details of parts and pictures here:

Glad we caught up with this, a great bit of kit, love the control box!  :)  :clap:   :clap:  :clap:  :)9  We have an idea for some smaller airbags if we can get the parts, fingers crossed. Good to see the bag at work too, very well done.
Just a thought, would one of the old wheeled twin extinguishers do for twin compressed air cylinders ? there seem to be a few turning up on ebay, usually without the hose.

These may assist you in your double air tank design. ;)

Thanks Bill, knew we'd seen those before we actually joined & were just lurking as a guest, got them bookmarked now for future reference  :)9  Really well done on the air bags and especially on the tank seals, something not usually represented  :)9 thanks again  :)
