I have a friend that custom builds 1/16's from scratch. I don't think he has ever done a Versatile, as his orders are all for Big Buds and Steigers, but I'll bet he is up for a challenge. Probably wouldn't help the OP though, as he is booked a couple years out, and for what he gets for his models, you probably wouldn't want to give them as birthday presents.
It boggles my mind the time and detail he puts into them. He has been working this winter on a replica of the 950 Bud that came from Canada and went to Texas. He went to Great Falls MT a while back to take pictures and measurements while it was in the shop for a new engine. I'll see if he'll let me take and post some pictures when it's completed, it will blow you away.
If you're ever in a situation where you want a 1/16, and time and money are not considerations, PM me and I'll put you in touch with him.
