Liebherr tower crane Kibri

Kibri 11991


Liebherr tower crane

Kit model. Non-functional, other than the pivoting of the jig and the (manual) movement of the truck.

I replaced the gridded transparent plastic parts with burnished photo-etched brass imitation expanded metal.

After falling and breaking during the outside (and windy!) shooting, I reinforced some parts:

  • the main jig is attached to the mast by bronze wire inserts;
  • the pivot is realized with a TF M2×6 screw, whose head is hidden by a piece of grey decking.

NB: the new version (yellow) is ref. 10202.

According to Modellbahnshop-Lippe, this crane is type 63 EC-H and would be 1980s (era V). The Liebherr document on this crane is no longer available (see below).

Features: max. lifting height 41 m, max. outreach 42 m with lifting capacity 1.25 t, max. lifting capacity 5.6 t.
