Hello friends

This is my first Ironman building in foam. I was looking for some new material cause working with paper seems to be a hell of a job tho. Easy Click Foam in 5 mm thickness is really strong and flexible to work whit and really motivates me. The new material is used below wooden floors also cheap in price!

First of all i wanted to thank RPF to make it all possible to find all information about building costumes and everyone inside the community who helps me on this one. And of course my favorite ‘STEALTH’ and ‘BlackDynomo1’ how to work with fiberglass - primers - sanding and paint and ofcourse the laughing parts J.I Tested the material with paintbrush- primer and also if needed using fiberglass-primer and find out it’s not melting at all. When I am done I will update some picts. My next project will be a smaller one cause I think my kid wants to have one to! hehe

To bend some parts together in the right angle:


Just an both sides from the middle line like 2 mm. and get it out.

Can someone help me if there is a Foam PEP
for under the chest to connect het back and chest.

That's a unique material to create your suit out of (compared with the EVA-style foam builds out there)... My dad actually used this type of foam when he built a body for his 3-wheel car back in the 80's, so I know it works well with fiberglass.

It looks good so far. I'll definitely be following your progress! :):thumbsup

Update my Foam Iron man helmet :) (using the STEALTH FOAM version)
2 things i was missing in this version. the little hole square in the chin and i bend the part of the jaw line to. I am really happy about the way it looks now. Still in progress with the backside of the helmet cause i like to rotate this part into the helmet.

Soon i will make an update from the file foam version of the Helmet, cause many parts are not even or symmetric. Also for the mac users i will make this one in PDF document A4. In this version i also illustrate the back bottom of the helmet so it can flip up and down :)
