Small scale would be harder due to the thickness of most good materials. I would probably try detailing or texturing the canvas tarps that come in most kits, or making a wire frame and then the canvas part out of rolled thin Milliput putty. I guess you could try the thin, fine grained tissue paper from a shoe box, too. Remember paper shrinks when it is wet.
I use tissue paper. Although canvas does have a texture it is invisible in 1/76. Just use the paper rough side out. Don't fall for the old Airfix aeroplane fault of texturing fabic covered control surfaces because it isn't realistic at all. When fabric surfaces are doped they are as smooth as silk.
