You know, with the proliferation of laser-cut wood decks out there, for all sorts of ship types and classes, for a long time I've been wondering when someone would come up with a similar system for Japanese linoleum decks. Especially considering how tiny the tie-down strips are in-scale in 1/350 and up.

Paper does seem like the proper medium, or possibly decals; linoleum itself is far too thick to do the trick in just about any scale.

Love your stuff, Frank. I've always thought highly of your Hayasui, Furutaka and Kinugasa.
