    Would it be possible for someone to make one of these small ships?

    (taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cutter)

    Traditionally the sloop rig was a rig with a single mast located forward of 70% of the length of the sailplane. In this traditional definition a sloop could have multiple jibs on a fixed bowsprit.[citation needed]
    Cutters had a rig with a single mast more centrally located, which could vary from 50% to 70% of the length of the sailplan, with multiple head sails and a running bowsprit.[citation needed] A mast located aft of 50% would be considered a mast aft rig.
    Somewhere in the 1950s or 1960s there was a shift in these definitions such that a sloop only flew one headsail and a cutter had multiple headsails and mast position became irrelevant. In this modern idiom, a cutter is a sailing vessel with more than one head sail and one mast. Cutters carry a staysail directly in front of the mast, set from the forestay. A traditional vessel would also normally have a bowsprit to carry one or more jibs from its end via jibstay(s) on travelers (to preserve the ability to reef the bowsprit). In modern vessels the jib may be set from a permanent stay fixed to the end of a fixed (non-reeving) bowsprit, or directly to the stem fitting of the bow itself. In these cases, that may be referred to as the forestay, and the inner one, which will be less permanent in terms of keeping the mast up, may be called the stays'l stay. A sloop carries only one head sail, called either the foresail or jib

    Yes, it's possible. Take a look at the forums in mod tools.
