Hi, this is my last commission project, the hardest and longest I´ve made.

I had to make half of the boat from the movie "Jaws", 1/6 scale, to display the custom figures of the three main characters of the movie, Quint, Brody and Hooper, with headsculpts by Trevor Grove.
The scene would be the beggining of the shark´s hunting, with Quint sitting in his fighting chair.

I had no idea of where to start, but step by step I built the structure and later I tried to make every piece of the boat as much movie accurate as I could, but It wasn´t easy because in the movie they used two different boats and some parts change from one scene to another.

In the beggining I thought the project it would take about 4 months and finally it took 9 months to finish it. It was so hard because it seemed a neverending project.

The diorama is made of wood, aluminum, plastic, methacrylate, polyester resin and steel.

Some pictures don´t show the real colors of some parts of the boat, but it´s not easy to light such a big diorama with my null photographer skills.

Lots of pics here: Shaolin customs

Hi Javier, I posted this last week,, many people loved it... Really is a piece of artwork..so proud to own it... Nearly everything if fixed that was broken, I fabricated parts for stuff missing, it all came out great, you wouldn't know it was destroyed... I wish I had a pic of the cabin wall before I rebuilt it,,, so bad,,, even some of the inside sides were smashed? Very odd places to happen.,,,, I'm pretty good at Dio's myself, but hate to start them. But this, nobody could have done a finer job than you,,, simply amazing..

Thank you so much!!!:thumb

Hi Marty, I haven´t seen your thread yet. It´s good to know you could fix most of the pieces, that people liked the dio and most important, that you are satisfied with my work.
Thanks for your words!!!
