    Hi Everyone, a few weeks ago I built a new 52 based flash suit for my 4 years kid.

    It's all made in 5mm / 2mm foam. The parts are:
    - Complete cowl with separated chin (Based of JFCustom captain america foam helmet with modified parts, the chin was extracted from a CW flash foam file and cut to fit my kid's face)
    - Belt (freehanded)
    - Gauntlets (generic gauntlet template from TheFoamCave used as base)
    - Chest+abs (totally freehanded, you can see the pics I've based below)
    - Boots (captain america boot covers template from TheFoamCave used as base)

    The characteristic lines for the new 52 suit are made cutting a triangular lines (like making a mountain cut, see the JFCustom's post for more info) in the 5mm foam and gluing 2mm strips inside.

    Great work! I love these types of builds for kids. They outgrow everything so quickly it's so much more practical to use foam.
