I bought an almost band new ex Army JAP 55 twin off eBay a few weeks ago.I detoured from travelling to Kent on Saturday to collect it from Battersea. Turns out that the vendor is a film & TV special effects builder of some note. The first thing I see as I walk in the door is a fully functional Continental nine cylinder radial with a ten foot, four bladed prop & rigged up on a four wheel trailer as an wind machine. Rescued from a landing craft where it lay on its back for a living, it now produces hurricane-force winds upon request.
Next, the steel Tyrannosaur head made for Discovery Channel, the one that bit a Mini in half with its twelve tonne bite, the velociraptor claw machine & a Stegosaurus skull in bone-like resin.
Now this is something I'd have readily done for a living!
Anyway, sorry for the OT stuff, but getting back to our sheep, as it were, does anyone have a manual for the JAP 55 that I can scrounge a copy of?
