Acquired job lot of joiners tools.....

Jeff200sx
Hello all, I recently acquired 7 joiners tool boxes and contained within were some amazing items. All in fantastic condition, I am having a hard time identifying a few items and I would appreciate any help you guys can give.

Infill plane, 17 3/4 inches long, no maker stamping that i can find aside from Hearnshaw bros John Bull Sheffield. Took it to a friend who suspects it may be early Norris before full branding was used? Although I was leaning more towards Spiers of Ayr or a homebuilt kit.
I have been unable to get much of any information online on this model or even size, the sole measures 17 3/4 inches and most I have found info on are 17 1/2.....
I'll add a link to photo bucket for pics of this plane but i will also try to add pics directly to this post.
