IJN carriers were famous for having a series of drainage tracks along the edges of their flightdecks. Perforated with numerous tiny holes, they're nigh impossible to replicate in plastic and resin, leaving photoetch the only solution. Lionroar's R7032 IJN Aircraft Carrier Drain set contains 10 strips of straight-edged drains and 3 strips for curved edges. Click to enlarge
The set is etched in brass using relief etching to recreate holes and allow for easier bending. The first image below shows the reverse side, while the second shows the front with straight-edge drains on the top half and curved-edge drains on the lower.

Instructions are pretty simple showing where to bend and which type of drain goes on which shape of bulkhead. Click to enlarge
