According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year 2008 is a Year of the Rat (Earth). It starts on February 7 (Chinese New Year) and ends on January 25, 2009. It says that the Rat Year is a time of renewal and hard work (sigh), that patience and making the most of every opportunity you can find are the key to success - at least for this year. Today, we have a set of paper models designed by Yasuyuki Wada of the Japanese site - Injan.net
The one in particular is the Year of the Rat papercraft which comes in 3 colors (cyan, magenta, yellow). There are two others that you can download, a ladybug beetle papercraft and a some sort of boar papercraft. All their models are free to download and are very easy to assemble.
