Yes, you could probably make something from thin plywood or Masonite.
(Check in the back at Home Depot, I frequently find Masonite panels with
damaged corners for just a buck or two.) There is a bend of around
60-80 degrees near the top of the tank, which you could probably create

original metal (at the bend) panel made a smoother curve, the difference
might be noticeable. An expert wood bender might be able to duplicate
the bend with plywood, but I sure couldn't.
