1:50 scale collectors rejoice, here is the news:

TWH would like to clarify a post that has been made regarding the production of a 1/50th scale model P&H 4100XPC. A tooling model of the P&H 4100XPC has been made for Mine-Expo for P&H to promote their 125th Anniversary and in aiding to sell the 4100XPC real machine only. A decision on having a 1/50th scale model has not been made and the future of the possible model project is not known. It is possible that the model will be produced, but no decision has been made. Collector input is always valuable and we understand the excitement surrounding the possible 4100XPC project. Your feedback is always well noted by TWH and we invite you to share your ideas. Thank you for being valued customers.

AND if that was not enough.....confirmation that we will have the 797F to go with it. What awesome news!!!! Will be an expensive end to the year and Santa may need a bigger sled.

(Mitchtim extends his appologies to TWH and all collectors for the incorrect information. I commend TWH for creating anonther exceptional model and hope that this project does obtain approval)

Hope it will not be any more than the OEM version 495s.

Great news and not so great news. I am overwhelmingly excited of all this recent news but it doesn't mean that I'll get everything on my list of wants.

Still exciting though.

Our 4 (5 if you count the pile of parts coming through the gate) XPC's are all the boring white/black we've had for years, with the horrible red counterweight ("Swing Radius - Keep Clear"Whatever)

Here's the 43 before the counterweight graffiti crew got to it:

Thanks for starting the ball rolling, must be some more inspiring colours than that, thr yellow looks nice, the model is too big to have a bad colour scheme.

Yeah, I agree with Kev. It would be nice if the model is available in some different mine liveries. Having another white/black electric shovel would make it look too much like the 495(origional). I'd like to see some color here. Still gonna buy the model either which way + the 797F!

I hope it comes in yellow. Everytime I think about P&H I see a yellow shovel in my head.

Now we're talking - I think next to the old Cyprus white/blue, the P&H factory yellow/black is beautiful!

They were offering a special show early order pricing. I have not logged in/called to get the price yet though (have to unpack first and find the card). But the Bucyrus discount for the 495HR was something like 35% off retail.

Enjoy the images!

Hello all,

I have modified MITCHTIM's original message at the request of TWH as the information provided was not correct. There is a chance that the 4100XPC model will be produced, but lots of discussion still needs to be had re: the model.

So TWH does not want to create false expectations and this model is NOT "announced" as a collector model at this time. The sample was made for P&H for the show and their anniversary.

Thanks.

Well let's do this again.

TWH P&H, put me down in the books for wanting one P&H 410XPC.
I'm sure I'm not the only one!


Thank you
