It arrived this morning!!!
I think it's all there..instructions, decals and 5 thingies that all the parts are still attached to...and he sent the whole lot second class post!! Even recorded delivery would not have covered it if it had gone missing. Now I shall just gently hold the box....and recall that day in Forbidden Planet when I last held a box just like it..and sir wouldn't let me buy it because we were going to see a Show!!! Well, I have it now and it's mine...at last.
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

I bet it looks incredible. Even my dilapidated one had a sense of wonder about it when I took it out of the box. The kit is a real masterpiece. Congrats on having your own libby!

Thank you, It has been won and is now with me. At the prices these go for i will have to take my time building it, in case i mess it up. The sprues are stamped Ratio who build kits for model railways which i found interesting. The instructions re a little vague but i am sure i will get there.
 
Space Chopper
Glad to see it go to one of us! It is a real little masterpiece, isn't it? I found the joins between the neutron blaster pods, the nacelles and the main hull to be especially fragile- my one was the old, half-built restoration job up thread. I ended up using small brass pins and some very careful drilling and filling to strengthen those. There's a thread here somewhere that I put my pictures up on.

Is this the genuine article?

No. Absolutely not.

By all appearances it is a lovely replica model, but I cannot state this strongly enough, it is absolutely NOT the original Liberator 'Prop.'

The only real Liberator is in the possession of Mat Irvine. Same for Orac. Mat brought them to Return To Gauda Prime 2. The real Liberator shows its age, a result of what was done to it in Terminal.

Here is Mat with the Real Thing.

Thanks - it did look a bit too pristine! I hope no-one gets charged 2000 under false pretences.

Actually, it's become a sort of joke with Mat Irvine. He has mentioned this 'other' Liberator frequently at cons. You can see more of the genuine article in this short video made by The Geeks Handbag at Return to Gauda Prime 2. I think Mat even mentions that secret someone trying to sell his replica Libbie on the vid.

Not again?!!!
Maybe I'm being abit cynical, but wasn't this going on FOUR ROOMS or being taken over to auction in the US?

Doesn't Martin Bower dispute that Mat has the all the bits, claiming that he himself has 2/3rds of the large original, which he refurbished himself? I recall seeing that photo of Martin holding the ship aloft in one of the old Horizon n/ls.

It would be interesting to dig it out and compare the details to the seller's pictures.

Martin's refurbished Liberator is an object of great beauty.

I should know - after the B7 exhibition in Warrington (1992? 93? Can't remember exact year), Martin for some reason couldn't take it back with him, and asked if we would look after it for a couple of months. It had pride of place in our living room - treated at first as an thing of awe and delight, then as a bit of a nuisance because it took up so much space. At Xmas we draped it in tinsel because we had no room for a tree. And I had to take out extra house insurance for it, which led to some head-scratching discussions with the insurance company, because how do you put a value on something like that? In the end I was very relieved to drive it down to Dorset and return it to Martin.

As to whether it's an original prop? Bits of it are, rescued and refurbished by Martin. The rest is a reconstruction. It's gorgeous, but it was never used as a studio prop in its current form. I think to get a completely authentic studio prop you'd need to make a gestalt entity of this one together with Mat's.

So whoever buys it is getting a beautiful model, but should be under no illusion as to its provenance.
