Champette is born! Harder than Champ?

Champette was crafted and shipped to Riccardo, my star tester, yesterday. It should be 2-10 times harder than Champ, I hope. So it’s time to wait and see how Riccardo does with it. Why is it harder? How about this: it’s 2-sided and it’s double-decker (just head and tail) and both head and tail rotate and a mystery reason I will not divulge. Hmmmmm. Keep in mind that the below photo is my first prototype of Champette and it does not look like my normally crude prototype. It looks almost like a finished design because I wanted Riccardo to get the full effect. There is some roughness to the cut but that will disappear with the final version.
