You're going to need a bigger bottle.

Related clips. Not sure, but I don't remember the shark attacking the boat with the shark cage out of the water. I always thought it was when it was submerged.

Bottle Boat Artistic License I suppose.

Who can forget the 1975 thriller film "Jaws", that made everyone just a little weary about going in the water.

Huge shark? YAWN

I love bottled ships and this is just very cute, but <psycho environmental rant> this just perpetuates the myth of the danger of sharks. If sharks were at all interested in tasty humans there would be no beach swimming anywhere on an ocean shore. The occasional shark bite is clearly a mistake, and the mixed up beast gets a taste it usually spits the human out, but the oceans are being decimated. </per>

My grandfather put ships in bottles in his spare time, the patience involved is astounding...

Plus, Jaws. That‘s just, wow. I think I‘m in love...

Great stuff. Love miniatures. Best of the web.

Now build a boat inside a shark, then put the shark in another boat and all of it in a bottle. That would be something!
