Try gnawing this one from balsa! A 30mm (about 1-1/4") wide cowl vent, sheet metal style, and hollow. Just a trial, I still need to add details to it.

But I finally had success uploading to Shapeways, who are in the Netherlands, but accept orders from anywhere and ship internationally... and look at the price!

Actually, there's something like a $25 minimum... so I'll order several, and/or wait until I have additional parts ready... and until after I see the sample anchors from them. Let's see... for that Foundation Franklin, I need 4 cowls of this size, four more slightly smaller, a pelorus, several steam cargo and anchor winches, oval smoke stack cappers...
