In the future, I will just make a nib and use a roller ball refill.

Good to know. I have the tap coming from Mike Redburn and a PRS coming from Milan pens so I'll know soon enough. In all likelyhood I'll probably end up doing the same thing you plan on doing. I do know that I have 2 fountain pen lovers who like very thin pens and it seems like my best option is Jowo or Bock #5 nibs and since they are picky, if they don't like what I mock up then I can use it as a roller or try the fountain pen experience!
