Hi there
I have a timber ply kit built on a wall at the moment. I plan to start roof and need overhang of 10" (2" for 2 x 2 fire stop, 4" for brick skin and 4" overhang). I can fix a wall plate on house with extra 10" either side, but what do I do for front wall plate? Can I simply fix a 4x3 wall plate on top of front of kit? I was told front of kit has strength to hold trusses and don't need wall plate, but then I wouldn't have 10" either side unless I add wall plate, which would then increase height at front.

As you can read, I am a novice at this, but happy to learn from the pros.

Any chance of a picture of what you have already and perhaps a sketch of what you propose? I'm having a little difficulty visualising what is there and not really sure what a "timber ply kit" is.
Details such as what type of roof and what sort of covering could all have a bearing on the construction.

Can't say I've come across that type of construction myself but it looks as if it should be strong enough to hold the wallplate you intend. Without seeing in the flesh so to speak I would assume the joints are nailed and the only concern I might have would be the stress on those joints from the roof pushing outwards. I'd probably put in a horizontal tie between the wall and the new wallplate. This could be a timber at both ends same size as the wallplate and strengthened with steel plates.
