On July 1st 2012 I was invited to display some of my models at Mat Irvine's 'Smallspace' model event in Hanslope. Here is a short film showing firstly the models on the 'All Sections Alpha' display table, a brief look at my display, and then original BBC props by Mat Irvine and Mike Tucker. Sorry that I didn't film much as I was busy chatting!

Original, restored or fake. Don't care, just for God's sake take good care of them. For some of us these are priceless. thank for this

hope this helps i love the restored version . i think both are original as i said anuther liberator studio scale was built not by space models but by a model maker at the bbc and was used on blakes 7ask best chris a few sfx guys has confirmed this with me
But again you're back to what people say, or remember, I prefer some sort of proof. Martin has photos of the broken Liberator on the studio floor after final filming, then parts on his bench for restoration with the words 'Original main hull with paint partly removed'. The paint and damage match perfectly in both photos so I believe he had the original piece. But oddly he did not put that into the 'restoration' and it is clearly now on Matt's model - the main hull is a pretty big original part!

i agree both has original parts but martins has more. ive spoken to matt amd martin matts seems smaller ive been next to matts.there was two 3 foot models filmed a guy on set made a great liberator that was used could this be matts model slightly smaller as martin said.ask matt about this model martin had nuthing to gain as he sold the lib to make money for charity and hes a prop c.o.a tests props. matts dont. the owner of the liberator martins said he challenged matt to go court matt refused. 
Over the years photographic evidence provided by Martin Bower actually contradicts his statements in magazines and on his website, and makes his appear to be mostly fake, although his version does indeed contain original parts as well. Unless you can dismantle and examine both models we can only speculate on the exact true details. But at least you can certainly see the original parts on Mat's Liberator - and theres rather more than just 2. lol 
the liberator on desplay has only two original parts. as martin bowers measured this model to be fake. a matt replica made to be original . go to martin bowers web see it being restored.
the video is only 240! Can you please re-encode in HD and re-upload? This is PRICELESS! 
Marvelous stuff. Great to see these originals so well cared for.
