Juweela of Germany has released a nice 1/32nd to 1/35th scale set of 15 plastic corrugated iron sheets.

I don't to be honest, see much if any sense in this product. Recently, i've been working with sheets of corrugated card and the effect is excellent (just paint on Gesso to make it impermeable). Probably considerably cheaper as well....

I believe one can buy a huge Evergreen or Plastruct corrugated styrene sheet close to 8X11 size for a few dollars as well.

I wouldn't knock anything until I've actually tried it. However, the best stuff I've ever sen is the corrugated metal (actual metal) in old HO scale Suydam building kits. The metal is actually better scaled for 1/35 than HO.

I've also used heavy gauge corrugated aluminum siding from the model RR dept. You can dent it and ding it just like the real thing. And you can rust it and weather it with etching acid (but not too much as you won't have any siding left!)

I tend to use aluminium food trays and a paint tube squeezer. I just cut the required size sheet and run it through the squeezer. Produces great looking corrugated iron plus will bend to show damaged sheets. I saw the idea on here somewhere and would never dream of buying preformed sheets now when I can make the same thing for pence.

What I did was that I got a pack from Plastruct.. it has two large sheets.. then I get those aluminum food trays (I try to get the thin ones) and I cut a piece then I press it down on the sheet and just keep pushing it into it till it pretty much takes the corrugated shape.. and like the others said, you can bend it.. puncture it to simulate bullet holes.. so, it's more versatile

actually not really:
the tite is missleading... those are supposed to be "Faserzement Platten" which would be better translated to "fiber cement plates"... those are know here as "Eternit"

those plates might look simmilar to corrugated iron and they are used the same way, but as they are thicker they are less flexible (not at all, to be exact)...
