New mast done and provision for sail up/down

Been working on the small ship, the new mast has been painted. The spar is fixed to the mast with a pin and can be removed. I've added supports for stowing the sail and spar when down using wire and bits from tile-spacers.
 Spar removed and trial fitting of the down version
 some material added and tied off using 'scale' rope
now I need to do the sail and get it all painted up.

(update added below)
 before getting on withe painting I decided to apply the mast up/down concept to one of my larger ships as well

  1. Very nice Tidders - I have a knarr and a longship which desperately need some loving attention like this
