Hoi,

Just a small reference as I see many of you search for ideas to make corugated steel:

corugated

its a tool used in barbershops to squeeze tubes of substances empty

I have seen something like this used for( makign corugated steel for a WW 1 diorama. Mainly, there are two types, made of plastic (not good) or made of metal (much better).

I can't immediately fidn a metal one but in case you are interested I suppose at least one AFV builder should have someone near that is a hairdresser

Hopefully, it has the right wave pattern for Wellblechplatten.

depending on the pressure and the material, it is possible to come out not enough rounded the shape but just go over with a tool of the right shape to be perfect

Small shop has one made in resin.
And use lead sheet, or real thin aluminum.

Or you might check this out: Many packages of cookies/crackers/candy, etc., have dividers or tray sections (some in thin plastic) which closely resemble corrugated metal. Many cardboard boxes have corrugated "innards," you just dampen the outer layers of paper, carefully peel them away, and you're left with "corrugated" material. May take some searching for the right size, but then you have some munchies to nibble on while you're building.

That is the one good deal, and extra material can be had at the small shop which also sells the tool,as takes up to 2 weeks to make and ship. Seems they stopped selling the tool, but have the sheet, which might seem high for a 6 X 6 sheet,but lead and micro thin , also Dick Blick has metal sheet also, aluminum.
