I printed the original model earlier this year and was very happy. As I've learnt more about the design software and 3D Printing I've wanted to put more detail into this model. I've been using stills from a recent eBay auction for one of the original Liberators from the BBC so have been able to verify some of finer design details. I'd like to say this model would not have been possible without zeframs work on the original. I've included all parts in this list to make a Liberator, if it doesn't say 'new' its directly from zeframs model. Many thanks again for your design.
I hope you have fun printing this, the engine lines are done using white filament which fits in the holes and groves in the new model. It's a bit fiddly but definitely sets the model off.
I printed the nacelles in 10% infill otherwise they can get quite heavy and not hang right off of the fuselage.
Following a request to have the engine light up I have refined the design a little. I've added a new rear section and hollow engine globes. I used 12v LED lighting and a 12v type N battery and holder to make this work along with a small 555 based flashing circuit. It all goes together well and just means the rear would need swapping out to give you that option. To switch mine on I need to pull the engine globe piece off of the rear, switch it on and return it to the model. I've included pictures of the 12v LED strip and how I wired it up. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.
Another mod has been requestd and now there are two new files. These are for the nacelle fronts and front fuselage section with 1.5mm holes in to take metal rods instead of the printed tips. This makes it closer to the original Liberator.
To print you will need:
1 each of all of the Fuselage sections - choose the Mk2 rear section if you want the engine to light up as there is room for a battery and electronics to make this happen.
2 engine globes - choose the hollow ones if you want to have the engine light up and remember to put the wire in half way through the printing of the holes.
3 each of all of the Nacelle sections
Some white filament for the engine
