37.5% Yak Spinner Size

Anyone have an idea of closest-to-scale spinner diameter and style for a 37.5% Yak 54?

I had a Pilot Yak54 37.5%, i used a TruTurn 5" standard spinner and it worked well, looked great!

Thanks.

I figured it would be either 5 or 6".

I am considering a Dave Brown, as I need nose weight and hear they are heavy.

Be careful, because heavy props and spinners hurt throttle response

I scaled off a 3-view of the yak 54 , and it ends up needing to be 5.7". Checking against my cowl opening, that does not look like it leaves much space for air to enter for cooling!

I still would like to do a 5.5" for looks though..
