Now things begin to take shape.
All the parts and pieces come together as I hold Mr bean (now with the ball in his mouth) and test various angles above the base.
There will be a short wood dowel that connects Mr Bean to the base which you can see is painted.
I have to admit - at first I couldn't imagine Mr Bean 'leaping' with a tennis ball - but now.... this is great.
Look at him go!! The flying bulldog...
