Default Emma C Berry sloop rig modification

Hello all I'm new to the site and to model building, I received an old unopened kit as a Christmas gift. I happen to keep my full size sailboat moored within sight of where the Emma was originally built, and a mile from where she is now, so it seemed meant to be when I received this. Anyway the model I got is set up as a schooner, as the real boat was for most of her life. She was actually built (as you all already know I'm sure) originally as a sloop, and has been restored to sloop rig now. I've been trying to decide which way to build her, and wondered if there's a sloop rig plan or a description of the mods around, or whether people who've built her that way just figured it out as they went?

Sloop rig plans anyone?

Thank you, Mark

Sterling had a smaller model that was a sloop. Perhaps the plans could be blown up to fit the boat.
