Chef Rat by Nguyen Hung Cuong

Hidiho :p

I tried folding Nguyen Hung Cuong's new model, the Chef Rat.
The outcome was...let's say it was not as impressive as the authors ;)
I am rather satisfied with the body...first try of a more complex CP and i used Kraft Paper.

When folding the hat i came so frustated after a while that i just wrapped it arround and tried to hold it in place with a few folds...

I hope someone has some hints how to solve that problem more elegant *g*

You can download the CP here: http://origami.artists.free.fr/NguyenHu ... hefrat.htm

Thanks and happy folding :)

There's nothing wrong with it. Just name it "wizard rat" and you're good to go.

It look's like you've misarranged the layers on the leg. It should be rounder, but I think it's caught underneath. But hey, it's a great first attempt.

yes, i know. but as you already mentioned thats a minor thing and should be no big problem to solve when folding the model again :-)

thanks :roll:

You're not going to be able to fold the hat from small paper. Anyhow, you're going to want to fold the hat forward. Here's mine I folded a while back, the day Cuong released the CP. As I said, my paper was too small.

If you wait a bit, you can see the diagrams in the next Origami Collection (OrigamiUSA)

The spoon is from a different sheet ;)

marc, i don't live in the us and i'm no member of the ousa. actually folding cps is more fun to me at the moment than folding from diagrams :)

jared, are you sure the hat has to be folded foreward? It looked to me as it was wrapped arround from behind :?

Ok so the diagram may look a little confusing to you because of the flap placement. I personally havent folded this model yet, but it looks like you just have to arrange the layers untill you get something that looks like the diagram.
I would rather fail trying than fail without trying....

hi,

it is hard to believe:
I´ve folded kamiya´s cerberus;
I´ve folded ku´s nazgul;
I´ve folded kamiya´s bahamut and

...

... I´ve folded the chef rat (nguyen hung cuong) already two times - giving the models to colleagues of mine - knowing that I´m able to fold the chef rat any time once again ... well ...

I´m totally stuck at step 57 (50 hours of origami): I´m pretty sure everything is correct up to this point; I do have 4 tips on top in step 56, but after performing step 56 the first and the second tip are somehow "connected" to each other and I do have no chance to reverse-fold anything to get a result like in step 58 :(
I´ve tried every possible folds/variations I could think of - the result is not step 58, but a ripped and crumpled paper ...


obviously there must be something wrong ...

any help is appreciated, pics or even a video highly welcome.

thanks
franz

Ok I am stuck at exactly the same place as franz. How did you solve the problem? The closed unsink in step 56 seems to lock all the points.
