Default Kit-less pens, two new tryouts

These two pens took time to complete as there were breakage, though finally managed to piece together end of the day.

The maroon pen has a less common nib, it is an old NOS vintage indian nib , Platinum brand. Jinhao converter. The clear acrylic ink window and the section have been new tryout attempt. This one came out a long pen , size comparison with a Twsbi 580 shown.

The colourful pen is made with a white acrylic rod inner body and aluminium coupler. The colourful part of the section and end finials are made from epoxy resin rods from my early casting. These epoxy resin material is very soft and does not sustain threads, hence the acrylic inner body. The epoxy also needs coating of CA glue same like wood for sealing and strength. This pen is given a Jowo 6 nib unit and a Jinhao converter.

Both pens took a lot of time because of too many parts joining and also had breakage. Overall happy that the pens completed this way.
Hope you like the design. Welcome comments and criticisms.

I like your pens but have to admit your pictures drive me a little nuts because they are sometimes out of focus. Any chance of using your camera's manual focus or tripod or something?

Thanks for the link, which is not quite complete, but I found the twsbi 580 by searching on the Goulet website.

Thanks

you can rob a piston from an indian threaded cartridge like in noodlers or airmails and make a piston with the clear acrylic
