My plug is 30ins....so I think that comes out around 22nd scale or so.
Fair bit of rubbing down to be done and Im hoping to glue on the rubbing strakes underneath before I make the mould from the plug. Then if it comes out ok, I'll rip it up the middle...lay on some flanges and hopefully a mould at the end of it.

Got some others off the net, happy to send you file with those.
We also have two near Glasgow, Beaver Bay & Biter that we can photograph if we ask nicely.
I'll try to get something taken of the plug soon too.
