    With this next piece I thought i'd move away from the military and enter into the movie field.
    I have always been a movie fan and I like to do models from movies now and then,one particular bust related to the big screen became available a few weeks back now and from one of my favourite movies as well,when I saw it I was completely blown away by the piece itself and it was a no brainer for me that I had to have it.
    The bust depicts Robert Shaws character from the movie blockbuster ' JAWS ' - ( Quint ).
    I knew exactly what I wanted to do with regards to this piece and the backdrop I wanted.
    I changed the piece by adding the green army jacket which quint wears onboard the orca during the movie,its just a personal thing,the bust is great anyway.
    I set about creating the backdrop by depicting part of the cabin,for this I used sections of balsa,plastic-card and tubing with some balsa dowel used as well.
    I used lots of photos from the movie as a reference and finally settled on a scene I was happy with.

    The bust is beautifully cast with very minimal cleaning up,it also comes very well packaged in its own little hinged box which I thought was a nice touch as well.

    its available from a company called white shark gaming studios,they also deal in plinths,gaming accessories,gaming bases,resin terrain,this is only their second resin bust to date.

    The jacket is a great addition and a must for Quint. Is the cabin based on the film?
    One of my favourite actors (along with Gene Hackman and Rod Steiger).
    Hmmm--a 3 figure scene with Quint explaining the scar on his forearm.
    Might need a bigger boat.
