Honestly, I didn't like the one I made. The body of the pen is clear plastic and pretty slim, and the cap part you actually turn is if I remember correctly 12mm. The cap seemed large, awkward and top heavy. that's all my personal opinion and aesthetic preferences though. The kit itself turned and assembled fine.

I made one last week. Like Ekick said, it is top heavy. All of the example pens on PSI's website have a bulge in the body, which make it more pronounced. I turned mine straight, which helped a little. In spite of that, I like it, even though they're a little gimmicky. I bought the starter set, so I will be making at least two more. I have two friends who really like fountain pens.

I posted a pic on the forum of these which I had made a little while ago. They have novelty value but I drew attention to the cheap nib assembly which could be easily improved with a purchase from Beaufort Pens. I don’t disagree about being top heavy but if one looks at the Parker 51 demonstrators with standard( not plastic) cap they are not dissimilar.
