How to make louver?

Recommended Posts

I recall seeing someone on a scale EMS/Fire truck forum that used quarter round styrene glued in place than hollowed out with a #11 hobby knife.  I have also contemplated using thin brass, but never attempted it.  Seems like you could just cut the brass and push it out from the back.

You can always experiment...sheet and strips of styrene could work, thin brass is also an idea although can be harder to work with.  Another option would be the foil found on wine bottles and then use some type of template from spare parts, scribing templates, etc to use to "bend out" or "press" the louvres into shape/position.
