    Could you scale the model?
    If it is a 4" valve now, you'd make a 1/2 scale model to use it for 2" applications. A 48" valve could be made by making a 12:1 scale model of the original.
    I think a 48" version would need to have additional hand wheel spokes to look right, but it does not need to be perfect, scaling the model should work.
