A must for all Wallace & Gromit fans, this Haynes Manual gets under the skin of the various vehicles and contraptions employed by the duo during their hugely popular adventures. Featuring the motorcycle and sidecar and Austin A35 van (both with special modifications) and various inventions such as the Techno Trousers (The Wrong Trousers) and Knit-o-matic (A Close Shave), this book gives a fascinating insight into the inner workings of the machines and the mind of everyone's favourite inventor. This Haynes Manual is complete with how-it-works explanations, cutaway drawings, sketches and blueprints, along with workshop notes from Wallace himself.
