or Big Yellow Ribbler (put up a parking lot)

Someone on another board asked about making 1/6th scale corrugated sheeting.

You have a couple of options - one is to Google for 'corrugated card' which will pull up stuff like this:

70 pence (about US$1)for an A4 sheet. From:

Alternatively, you can get a 'ribbler' or 'corrugator'

I just ran a bit of aluminium drinks can (that I was using for my ammo boxes) through my wife's "Big Yellow Ribbler" (as you do - I think it's legal as long as you're married) and it came out well.

This particular one will do a strip 6 ins / 15 cm wide, although you can get ones that will handle A4.

Hope this is useful to some of you.

There should actually be two threads here already on 1/6 corrugated sheeting. The first being on those made by a short bald guy, and going back maybe two years. I can't find any trace of it, though.

That nibbler is a neat tool. The results I've seen look a bit smaller than 1/6, but if there is a 1/6-able-size one it'd certainly be one heckuva find.

SG, just Google for 'card ribbler' or 'card corrugator' and you should find plenty of options.

NB - be aware - some of them turn out teddy bears or stars instead of corrugations, so be careful, or you could end up with a very strange looking sniper or trench dio!
