Actually, I've had that expanded aluminum mesh for about 20 years. It originally was a 6X8 inch sheet, that was given to me by a military modeller who I worked with. I've just about used it up - in fact, this may be the last model because I just have a few small pieces left.

HOWEVER, I think you may find what you're looking for from Model Car Garage. They have several photoetched mesh patterns to choose from.

Click on "Street Rod Grilles"

Also, you can find several fine mesh sheets in some craft stores, such as, Michaels, if you have those stores in your area.

You could give this stuff a try if you're looking for aluminum mesh. I ordered it from my local train guy but it's listed in the Walther's catalog.

Aluminum mesh by Scale Scenics #652-3500

It's sold for small scale dioramas and is real expanded metal.
