Jaws 2 inspired diorama (Shark vs Helicopter)


Recommended Posts

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) cause I wasnt able to find a Hughes 269B. I think the same HTL-4 kit is made by Academy now. I Add half a shark (PNSO megalodon) and a vietnam war helicopter pilot found on ebay and voilà...really glad I used the HTL-4 cause its more dramatic to see inside the cockpit.

One of my favourite scenes as well.  I remember laughing hysterically when I saw the movie as a kid.  Your diorama is first rate!  The water is so realistic, and I love the sense of motion the whole scene has.

I jumped out my cinema seat when I first saw this scene in the film.
