Completely illegal to use on the road and liable for a pull from the boys (and girls) in blue.

Fancyplates.com have a 3/4 size front plate listed (390mm X 84mm)
I've seen smaller than that on the roads, but don't have details of a supplier.

+1 on that.

I think the rules are not about the size of the plate itself, but the size and spacing of the characters. So, if you want to stay legal and get rid of the number plate plinth off the front you would need a 'personalised registration' with either 6 characters or less, or because 1 is a narrow character an 11 registration. Spaced properly, that should be enough to make the plinth redundant

Yep, you can get a 100% fully legal 5 character UK plate down to 338mm x 101mm
I had mine made up by Fancyplates.com

Shorter than that if the number is a "1".

Just remember it's the size & spacing of the characters that's important, if you have a full size plate, you can cut it down so that it has the minimum border, but what will cause unwanted attention is if you use 'motorcycle' sized number plates with 3/4 sized characters. A friend of mine had s VX220 with a motorcycle sized number plate. In the end he mounted it on Velcro and kept a full sized one in the boot he got pulled over that often.
