Help needed in screening libraries.

Does anyone have any idea how many plaques I need to screen to have a
good chance of finding a full length gene that I'm after?  It's a moth
cDNA library cloned in lambda phage.  Also how many plaques is it best
to use on a single plate of 150mm diameter?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
