    Crumpled tinfoil painted black. Use a cheap spray paint, like matte black rust primer.

    I would think any material that would take the black paint would do the job . My tunnels are more of a mined out area with out walls , but I will have to do something at the openings . Thanks for reminding me I'll put it on my list.sign1

    Light cardboard, perhaps? (I've heard it called posterboard or 'oaktag' depending on where you live). Cheap, flexible, takes paint easily...

    I'm making my tunnel interiors out of white styrofoam. I bent a copper wire into a tunel shape and placed it inot my soldering gun to make a hot wire cutter. I follow a radius template for the curve radius I want. After I cut out the main section, I rough it up a little with a file and paint. I previously posted a pic on this thread
