I used bass woos, balsa, brass, aluminum, and styrene to create it. Whatever reference I could find (which wasn’t much!) And over 350 screen captures from the movie. The sand on the base came from Quints shack location on Martha’s Vinyard. The acrylic stand on the base holds a section of the fiberglass hull from the Orca II, which was the sinkable boat in the movie. This was purchased from the owner of the boat, the prop master from the movie.
The Orca from Jaws
Took over 1000 hours in a span of a year and half
This is completely scratchbuilt rendition of the boat.
