Model of Bruce The Mechanical Shark from the movie Jaws
  • Bruce The Mechanical Shark Resin Kit

    Rating is 5.0 out of five stars based on 4 reviews

    Our first JAWS kit features Bruce the Mechanical Shark as he appeared during the making of the 1975 classic by Steven Spielberg.  This highly-detailed replica measures 19.5 inches long by 9.5 inches high and consists of 22 parts.  You get the head...the tail...the whole damn thing.


    The kit is entirely 3D printed, but the parts are very thick - the larger parts have some real weight to them.  This feels very much like a cast kit.  The complete model weighs approximately 2.5 lbs. 


    The heavy 2-part base gives Bruce a stable platform in which to be mounted to.  The sculpted water is a solid chunk of resin!   The two clear acrylic rods (included) are used in conjunction with the crane to form a stable tripod.  


    Don't worry, it's not as complex as it looks.  We did our best to try and simplify the overall design and to minimize the total number of overall pieces.  A set of fully illustrated instructions will be included with each kit and should make assembly pretty straightforward.  


    We worked really hard to make this and we think it's the best kit we have ever produced.  We sincerely hope that you enjoy building and painting it! 


    We can't wait to see all of your builds - so please share your pics with us on Facebook or contact us here on the website.

    • Dimensions

    • Please Note:

      The photos in this listing reflect the very first test-fitting of the model. 

      Before the kits started shipping, I made adjustments to the tail and dorsal fin to make them more accurate.    

      I also decided to include a pectoral fin for Bruce's finished side (not shown).

      I'll be posting new pics soon.

    Jaws the amazing shark

    My kit arrived yesterday.

    What a fabulously printed model, so clean and trial fit is excellent. It is a good size and the detail is amazing.

    How something this good is designed and printed is a wonder to me.
