Default Kit-less flat end pen in caramel swirl shade acrylic

Made out this pen last night. This honey colour acrylic blank was bought from AliExpress, it is a soft and smooth material to work with.
The pen is regular sized, barrel end is tapered a bit more to allow secure cap posting. The cap is maintained parallel over its full-length, including the finial. Section is given a small concave for better grip. Cap maximum diameter 16.8 mm and barrel maximum diameter 14.6 mm....do you feel the cap should have been slimmer? However the cap is strong this way.
Jowo 6 fine nib unit and Schmidt K5 converter used. Shown a size comparison with a Lamy Safari.
Hope you like this design. Welcome comments and criticisms.

Awesome job! I love that color, rich and creamy. I donít think the diameter of the cap looks too big.
