Soffit corner question


I've got a weathered corner soffit that was constructed out of plywood. It gets wet and sees a lot of sun and wind. The rest of the trim is cedar which I was told to paint - which I did and now regret I didn't stain it...so I'm doing a bit of trim sanding and repainting every summer as the stuff peels off. In out of the sun/wind areas this is holding up pretty well so far (4 years in Minnesota).

My real problem is this: I've pulled off the plywood on the soffit corner and I'd like to replace it with something that won't "curl and crack" like the cheap plywood that was put up there.

Suggestions would be much appreciated.

(If the picture loads) I have the type shown in A.

The image does not seem to be posting, but it's from this site (perplexing soffit corner)
