As far as I know, there is no 1/16 COE on the market.  All of the ones I've seen have been scratch built.

Yea your best bet is to contact those who have scratch built them and see if they will sell you one, OR they may show you how to build one.

None available as kit, and none in the aftermarket that I know of. I made a 1/16 KW COE years ago...

You would think Monogram would have done one a long time ago ........................ or some other company.

Jaymar in Australia did a 1/16 Peterbilt 110" 362 cab a long time ago....it was fibreglass and delivery was uuuhhhh...let's say: it was Jaymar ;)

They also did a couple of 1/16 W900 conversions ( S2 and SAR ).

I love the way that the Jaymar quality is even known about in the Netherlands. :)

Rob,

And I wasn't even talking about the quality but about getting the parts you paid for ;o)
We did a big order a couple of years ago and about 80% of our order was delivered.....of course we paid for 100%.
I have an old Jaymar catalog and he sure had nice parts.....too bad the quality was questionable.....if you actually did get the parts.

Regards, Arjan
