One of the most popular characters of the Golden Age, which has endured several incarnations into the present day, the Flash has proven to be one of comic book impresario Gardner Fox's greatest comic creations. According to Wikipedia:
.
"Jason Peter Garrick is a college student who accidentally inhales heavy water vapors in his laboratory. As a result, he finds that he can run at superhuman speed and has similarly fast reflexes. He dons a red shirt with a lightning bolt and a stylized metal helmet with wings (based on images of the Roman god Mercury) and begins to fight crime as the Flash. The helmet belonged to Jay's father, Joseph, who fought during World War I. He has been seen using the helmet as a weapon/type of shield, and has also used it to direct a beam of light."

Flash Comics No. 1 /Jan. 1940
Cover Art by Sheldon Moldoff
"The Flash soon becomes one of the best-known of the Golden Age of superheroes. He is a founding member of the Justice Society of America and serves as its first chairman. He is originally based in New York City, however this was later changed to the fictional Keystone City. He leaves the JSA after issue #6, but returns several years later (issue #24, Spring 1945) and has a distinguished career as a crimefighter during the 1940s."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the cover above featuring the Flash's 1st appearance.. However, I have included an alternate chest assembly and legs too if you prefer the costume changes adopted several issues later.

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
