Has anybody used the sails from 10320 Eldorado Fortress sails on the "cutter" from the 6277 Imperial Trading Post?

Specifically I'd like to know if the new sails are a good fit for the old ship.

I've got 2 sets of 6277 sails but both sets are worse for wear, so I'm wondering if the 10320 sails are a suitable substitute.

Here are some comparison images of the entire ships I've found on Reddit - but does anyone here have firsthand experience?

Based on the below images, the colour of the sails on the new version leans more towards olive than than, and the crown emblem is different, but the size seems comparable.

Hello!

You're lucky, I have both models on display so I did the experiment. Using the new one is working pretty well I think. :pir-triumph:

I also have scanned the sails next to each other to catch the size difference.

Is there a way to raise the attachments limit to provide two pictures (160kb each) and the scanned sails as PDF (700kb)?

Yes indeed!  I have increased your attachment limit to 10MB.

As you can see it fits pretty well with some adjustments for the main sail. I have:

  • at the top, added a 4623 and the 10320 bars because the original sail was held by a hole,
  • at the bottom, I have used the poles from 10320 because the sail and the holes are bigger, and the original spears were too short, this brings the flag pole behind the mast,
  • lowered the whole thing by one brick height because this sail always seemed too high for me (this is purely for my taste).

I couldn't upload the PDF file so here's the comparison directly as attached image (both don't have the same scale sorry):

I think the smaller jib and spanker are not a problem. The bigger main sail is a plus. Steve seems to like it :pir-classic:

Thank you!  This is a great comparison - it's more than I could have ever hoped for! :pir-huzzah2:

These details are great!  This information will be very helpful for the future.
