Never seen one of these

If any of you guys know about this kit let me know. I really do not know anything about it. I just tried to describe it as I see it.

I wanna know how they cast those white metal cowl vents with such a thin wall...

For the record, here are some captures:

I reamember seeing an article in a Nautical Reasearch Journal about an electro process to make cowl vents similar to these around a soluble insert.
Have to see if I can find it.
