Are you referring to those circular-shaped grates?
Those, along with other parts, are photo-etched brass. The circular grates are actually made from two separate parts that have been glued together to more accurately represent the original grates.

Jeff speaks truly. On the real boat, the grates are actually rebar, welded over a slightly elliptical (when projected onto the hull) ring. We reproduced this the same way via etched brass. As such, the extra relief does MUCH to enhance realism. Jeff LaRue is actually who did the etched brass for us to answer your question. too by the way.
