Default The Green Baron - Bash 2017

This was my entry to the 2017 Birthday Bash Advanced Kit Contest.

I casted the blank in alumilite using apple green pearl ex powder. The kit is a baron. I closed both ends but kept the clip by using a tap and die on the top. I cut a tenon and threaded the cap portion to accept the clip, then I tapped another piece and turned them down to the same dimension as the band of the clip.
This was my first time doing this and I am very happy with the result. I'm still working on my kitless design and I hope to incorporate it in the near future. I am definitely interested in how people make their own clips- so if anybody has any tips/tutorials- shoot em my way!

Thanks for looking! I appreciate comments and criticism.

Excellent Pen, James.
Beautiful Blank, Great Fit and Finish.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
