jaws 2 diorama with BELL HTL-4 from MRC
Posted by Phil Momo on Wednesday, May 4, 2022 4:29 PM

 I've been wanting for a long time to create this diorama, as I love this scene from jaws 2 when I was a kid. Its so over the top. So I bought an old MRC kit for the bell helicopter HTL-4 (1:35), I think its made by Academy now.  First time i use the tin foil very well.

        This ain't fair! I took an enlarged look at your Helo/Shark Dio. I got wet! That is how real it looks! Wonderfull and Insightful job. Love it for sure. P.S. Do you put it on a towel when you display it and do you supply towels to the observers? Again, Nothing short of awesome. By the way. "Is that the Extra shark head from the Pegasus Hobbies kit?"

        I am still trying to decide which head I want to use. The Shark and The Diver -The Shark does a sneak attack from Below the camera Diver outside the cage!  Or The Shark By Himself just for his sheer Predator majesty!

Thanks :)


I use the PNSO shark. Took me a lond time finding a good shark with the good scale on ebay. I guess you can also use a 3D printer.

My favorite all time movie is Jaws.  Jaws 2 wasn't as memorable but this was a classic scene.  Anything with the Jaws shark is terrific for me.  This is really cool and well executed.

That came out splendidly.

Mind, there is an irony that modeling "bruce" (the name assigned the animatronic shark prop) is "modeling a model" is delicious, too.

Love how well the "Harbor Patrol" lettering came out, too.

Your thread topic is amazing click bait. Wink

I totally had to come look at this and boy am I glad I did.  It's a jaw dropping take on that scene.  Big Smile

Fabulous results and I'd be afraid to get too close to it for fear of getting bit!

That water is simply amazing Yes .

I've never tried the aluminum foil technique but after seeing your dio, will definitely give it a go for my next stormy ocean dio.
