Not as such, but memory says that someone from one of the IPMS Tyneside or Wearside branches did one in response to a competition judge commenting that his 1/35 scale Chieftain "needed a base", so you could try a web search for IPMS Scottish Nationals Rhino pictures and for IPMS Glasgow competition Rhino pictures since one or both of those would be where I talked to the guy.

Hello, Typhoon! I made a 1/72 Rhino Ferry paper model (didn't build it yet), that you could made on plasticard or other suitable materials. The real thing is very big (53x17x0,90m; that is 73,6x 23,6x 1,25cm in 1/72 scale), so I made a reduced one, for me.
If you're interested, I can give you the templates. 🙂

Dear Typhoon:
I send you a PM with the templates of the Rhino Ferry. I forgot to send you the instructions (I didn't make any!): please write to me if you need some help.
