I am stuck on step # 54. I can't get the folds to work together. How do the details work out? I don't get how the different layers can lay flat. #-o

You fold the sides to the middle on top, and the bottom flap just squashes up... Check all the creases carefully and make sure they're all there. Maybe there was a mistake in the previous steps?

Stefo, step 43 is actually very easy. I recomend folding the vertical blue line first, and then as long as the black line is precreased it should fall into place nicely. Step 44 is a little bit trickier.

Kondapavan, I'm guessing that the "neck" of your clock is really thick and hard to find the creases, right? Lucky for us, the neck gets completely hidden inside the clock when the model is completed. It doesn't have to be perfect. If you've gotten this far, I'm sure you can do it!

Welcome to the forum and good luck to both of you!

I am stuck at step 53 of the Cuckoo Clock. I just can’t figure out how to create those points. Anybody have videos, pictures or advice?

Thanks!!
