Get some double thickness cardboard..with the corrugated bit sandwiched between two flat pieces. Carefully peels away one flat piece and you should be left with the corrugated side exposed. Paint it silver or whatever your colour of choice is and hey presto...1/6 scale corrugated tin cheers

There's a type of corrugated cardboard sold in many art supply stores...I don't know what it's called, but it's most often used I think to make mattes for pictures  it comes in many colours including silver and scale-wise, it looks just right for 1/6 scale.  If you glue two pieces back to back, staggering the grooves, it looks very realistic.  One note:  It does not like being wet and if you plan to paint rust or something, either drybrush or airbrush it.

Thanks for the suggestions , was looking / hoping for something a bit more substantial than cardboard , though it can look good . Sure I seen something to do with floor or bath tiling that some one used , but can not find the post now and it`s very hard to judge size online .
