    I believe they sell corrugated paper at Michaels- you can paint it up and it looks great! Also, some, some cardboard you can remove one side, leaving the inside corrugated- it's a bit of a pain in the ... though...
    It's a fabulous time to be collecting in 1/6th scale!

    I was thinking wet down cardboard then let it dry to give it that corrugated look, but its too thick if you want to simulate thin metal sheets. Good for "reinforced" walls or doors though. I have a zombie stronghold wall / door type I'm thinking about and was playing with wet then dried cardboard.

    If others have ideas, I would love to hear it.

    Try this, works well on Paper, card stock, thin sheet metal/aluminum and thin plastic card.

    I actually found four pieces of sixth scale corrugated "metal roofing" on EBAY

    I've got something similar to that called a 'ribbler' and it works well. I use it on aluminium sheets cut from soda cans.
