The best bang for your buck is a old school round filter off a small block chevy, you can get one at your local auto parts store For $10 or less . Once you got one just tear out the wire mesh around it, it is perfect for fences and you get alot of it.

I usually use plain old metal window screen material.

With a little detailing (like posts, mounting brackets, etc.) it looks pretty good.

Nothing crazy about the posts, Mike. The posts are aluminum tubing with a small steel ball

at the top (from a "birdshot" shotgun  shell) and the straps are strip styrene.  The main thing

is to mount all the hardware as it's done on the real thing.  Do a "chain link fence" search for

photos of real fence construction techniques and you're good to go!
