A while back I ordered one of Langton's small merchant ships from Waterloo Minis. I wanted the full studding sail set but all Rob Eubanks had in stock was the easy sail courses furled.

After fitting the masts that came with the merchant to the sloop to see how they looked, I decided to save the brass easy sail set and masts for the sloop and scratchbuild masts and sails for the merchant.
I will be going back to work for two weeks tomorrow so I won't be able to finish until I get back, but here is what I've got done so far.
