Metal Lathe as Soffit?

Are there any downsides to doing this beyond appearance?
Can't find the soffit I need anywhere in town, and would like to know if it's a good alternative.

Just make your own using 3/8" plywood sheet and cut vents into it. That is what they did back in the day.

That's what I did on my house, works/looks well. The only disadvantage is it needs to be painted about every 10 yrs.
