Yes, if you can find just one sheet of the plastic corrugated that suits you then you can make as much as you want from the aluminum cookie sheet pans, a piece of corrugated plastic, and an old ball point pen or a sharp stick.

Here's a photo of my old Cedar Tap RR shop in 1:48 scale, On30 gauge. The real shop (and the model) was 60 by 80 feet, all corrugated. I couldn't afford that much ready made tin so I made my own. The roof is tin also. A buddy measured the building and concluded that there is about 13,000 sq scale feet of tin. Yep, it took me a while but it was cheap and looked neat.
Sorry the font changed to this bold crap, I don't remember how to change it back without screwing something up.


It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
