1:50th Scale Manitowoc 4100W Vicon Equipped Ringer Crane

by Steven Downes

Presented here is the 1:50th scale Manitowoc 4100W ringer crane which is an amazing piece of engineering and a faithfully reproduced model of a famous crane. The model is supplied in a large box and requires some assembly to get the crane erected.

The Manitowoc 4100 ringer base is supplied pre-assembled and requires the crane housing to be connected to the slewing ring. The individually linked metal tracks freely rotate and the small drive chain has been added to the drive sprockets.

The eight stabiliser pads are equally spaced around the ringed frame and they can be lowered to provide good stability. The four main hydraulic jacks are riveted to the ringer frame and can be rotated to lower into position. Hydraulic pipe detailing has been fitted to the frame and jacks which adds to the level of realism.

The counterweights supplied with the model consist of three sections which connect together and fit to the rear of the crane body. There are also six rectangular counterweights which are placed on the rear counterweight tray once it has been connected to the crane with the supplied pins.

The front boom mounting arm is highly detailed with main and back mast connection points as well as the rear counterweight tray mounting bar all pre assembled. The main crane body is the same casting as the previous 4100W releases with opening cab door, fully reproduced cab interior, opening side engine compartment door revealing the engine components within and opening roof and crank case doors.

Once the crane's upper structure has been secured to the ringer base, the crane can slew smoothly and the rear A frame is pre-rigged with rope which is a welcomed touch as rigging cranes can be a real challenge.

The back mast is made up of the boom and base sections of the standard 4100W lift crane with reconfigured boom tip and the rope is pre-rigged on this section from the main winch inside the crane housing. On the sample here, the rope was very well prepared and secured with masking tape so erection of the boom was relatively straight forward.

The assembly instructions supplied with the model are very good with easy to follow step-by-step stages so it should not be too difficult for anyone to erect and rig the crane.

The rear A-Frame is pre rigged with the four large rope connections already fitted. These four ropes screw to the tip of the back mast with a second set of four ropes which connect directly to the counterweight tray. Incredibly, all the ropes on the sample model were at the exact length so they are all nice and taut.

The back mast is supplied fully rigged and taped up and it can be a little tricky to remove all the tape and keep the ropes on the pulleys. I found that the easiest way to keep the parts reeved was to connect the pennant lines from the boom tip to the equaliser before removing the tape. Once tension is placed on the equaliser, I carefully removed the tape ensuring that the rope was always kept taut and this worked out very well.

Two load blocks are supplied with the model which consist of the standard ball hook with riveted tie off connector along with a large, six pulley hook block with additional weight side panel detailing and a swivellingrotating hook with lift up locking bar.

The connection to the main boom is via the equaliser block and on the ringer version, the connections are made a little differently, as can be seen in the picture below.

The assembly of the main boom is very easy and on the model reviewed here, I chose to add two additional 40' main boom sections from the optional 4100W ringer extension and jib kit to give the crane a little more height.

Once fully erected, the upper structure rotates freely around the ringer base and the individual pads can be adjusted to provide a perfectly level base. The reeving of the load block is interesting as the rope is wound on one of the winches and the other winch is empty (Except for a rope tie off fitting). The instructions suggest that you unwind rope from the winch, reeve the hook and take the end of the rope and attach it to the second winch. This has the effect that both winches should be turned to raiselower the hook block.

If you are planning on fitting the #123 jib from the extension kit, you cannot reeve the hook block as detailed in the instructions but there is an instruction sheet with the extension kit which details the new rigging. If you are planning to add the extension kit, I would suggest doing so while assembling the main model.

The packaging for the model is excellent, with the model very well protected in a two piece polystyrene inner carton. The outer cardboard box is very sturdy with the top lifting off to reveal the inner carton. The A4 sized model assembly instruction booklet has a clear, step-by-step guide to fully assemble and rig the model and there is also a fold out A3 information card which details the benefits of the Ringer system. This is another excellent model and compliments the previously released lift and dragline versions of the 4100W perfectly.

1:50th Scale Manitowoc 4100W Ringer Extension Kit

The 4100W ringer extension and jib kit allows for the ringer to be built with an additional 5 x 40' main boom sections and a 40' and 20' back mast extension.

The #123 fixed jib can be set at three different angles and separate rope pennants are supplied for this purpose.

The detailed instructions supplied with the kit show how to dismantle the original model and re-assemble with the extra boom sections and there is only one configuration detailed in the instructions.

The #123 jib can be connected to the model without using any of the extra boom sections as the boom supplied with the ringer model do have the jib tie off points cast into them. The supplied rope pennants for the back mast only allow the full 40' and 20' sections to be used so you cannot easily just add the 20' or 40' rear mast sections on their own.

Hi guys, Britt from diecastmodels.co here. Today, we have the Manitowoc 4100W Ringer Crane, made by TWH Collectables in 1:50th scale. The 4100W Ringer Crane is an amazing piece of engineering, and here we have a faithful reproduced model of a famous crane. Let's take a closer look.

The main crane body has a highly detailed casting in a 360-degree rotation. There's a fully replicated operator's cab, which is revealed by opening the sliding cab door. On the inside, there are replicated pedals, levers and an operator's seat, which are very realistic.

On the other side of the crane, there is an opening engine compartment that you can slide open to see the very detailed engine. There's also an opening crankcase door and there are anti-slip walkways on both sides of the crane body. The anti-slip walkway on the side of the operator's cab leads to a ladder which will lead you up to the gantry, which is also very detailed. The gantry features iron steps that will lead to the ladder that accesses the top of the gantry.

The individually linked metal tracks rotate freely on the track frames. They're eight stabilizer pads equally spaced around the ringer frame that are adjustable to make the base perfectly level. There are also four main hydraulic jacks that are riveted to the frame and the hydraulic piping and lines are fitted to the tracks and the jacks. They can also be rotated or lowered into position.

The back mass is made out of a boom and base section. There are two metal cylinders that form part of the structure that hold the back mass in position. There are six rear counterweights that sit on the rear counterweight tray. The boom sections on the ringer have an internal bracing system which allows for a more stable boom. There are two hooks provided with the ringer itself. One is a single line headed ball and one is a hook block, which we have displayed on our model.

There are two keyholes that are on the side of the crane body, one of which, the first one here, operates the hook block and the second operates the single line ball.

Once again, this is the Manitowoc 4100 Ringer in 1:50th scale, made by TWH Collectables. You can get yours today at www.diecastmodels.co. Thanks for tuning in. You'll see me next time.

What a deal!!!

Posted by james flory on 1/5/2014
I was a little frustrated assembling this model as i had to take the base apart because the line on the rear drums was all tangled. After some head against the wall action, the rest went together nicely. Thanks DCM for making my collection bigger with this piece

Awesome Historical Model

Posted by B. Brown on 8/7/2013
I'm a retired crane operator, mechanic, and technician. Although I appreciate the ease, comfort, and simplicity of the modern late model lift cranes, I consider the 4100W one of the finest, dependable machines I ever assembled, operated, and maintained. This model displayed in my office provides me pleasant reminders of a lifetime of enjoyable work experiences with fine equipment. In most respects (except for the short mast), it is a very accurate detail of the real thing.

This is the first Model like this I have bought. Glad I did! This is an Awesome Model! I bought the extra boom and jib that goes with it, but had to leave one section of boom out because of the Height! It was fairly easy to assemble and it Looks Fantastic in my office. Looking to add the 4100W Tower crane to my collection soon.

The third brother 4100W!

Posted by Francesco Presti on 4/3/2013
The Ringer 4100W is the third version of the product from TWH Manitowoc 4100W. This is my third model you purchase and joins his brothers 4100W and 4100W crawler clam drag magnet I already have. Now there's only 4100W tower to complete the collection Manitowoc 4100W. I believe that this model will come soon in my collection. The Ringer 4100W is very nice it has a detailed high as the actual car. The quality is very good fit for a TWH. I my wife our daughter and my cat are very happy to own this fantastic model. Along with the model I purchased the extension kit that completes the pattern and it does become a very large model I recommend it to all collectors of this kind who purchase the ringer to also purchase the kit Thanks again to TWH in DCM, but especially thanks to Nicholas who has a lot of patience with me and is always available to talk with customers abroad.

Posted by Alex Murphy on 3/26/2013
This is a highly detailed model that has entered into my crane collection as my biggest so far, and is also my first Ringer. It is heavy and shows all of the details that the real machine has. The model looks great with the extension kit on it that allows the true scale of the model to be noticed in anyones collection.

Outstanding Craftsmanship

Posted by Alex Murphy on 3/26/2013
The 4100W Ringer is an outstanding show of craftsmanship from TWH that is shown in this model. The crane is heavy where fine detail has been adhered to from the real machine. This is my first ringer and also my biggest in my collection its a large model but its true size comes out when the extension kit is added onto it. This model is a great piece and I would recommend to anyone.

POLISHED BLAST FROM THE PAST

Posted by David Jacobi on 11/19/2012
The 4100 Ringer was an impressive crane in real life, and was ground breaking in its compact size, boom combinations and lift capacity.
The model faithfully replicates the crane and the finish is superb.
If possible buy the extension kit, it gives the extra dimension to the crane in terms of scale.

Unbelievable Detail!!

Posted by Tom on 8/8/2012
First off, I must say, I have not assembled the model yet, however I have looked over the parts and I am amazed at the quality and detail of this model. I highly, highly recommend this model to all crane collectors. The only problem I have found, is the definite need for a display case for this behemoth as you will not want a speck of dust to detract from the detail. I need to get the boom extension kit now. If you get this crane you will not be disappointed.
