    My only problem is the definition of fat slimline. This is made from a slimline and is fatter than a standard slimline. In or out?

    I love you Walter!!!....
    I dont want to stop the use of 'any' kit and want to promote the thought process.....so slimline kits are in and modified slims are OK but if you take a 7mm slimeline and chuck a fat band on it AKA a streamline then no....i almost want to say ' you can use any kit you like, but you must leave something out? ie center band, nib, end cap...would that be more descriptive??
    But to answer your question Walter....it shows thought and does not look like the original slimline pen so.....yes

    Damn this is hard!!

    Why not just say that any design pen can be made fat or thin as long as it contains at least say 50% of the original kit that you have chosen as the base of that pen surly that is a simple solution and when posting you must state what kit you used and blank as well as the changes you made and any special equipment like pin chuck or whatever. Why over complicate things.

    A couple of other considerations you may wish to include Mark -

    The Forum competitions usually stipulate that the work submitted must not have been published elsewhere before the closing date. You might wish to continue with that, or you might be be happy to allow work that may have been made several months or years ago. I know which I'd do but it really is up to you.

    It's also usual to insist that no props are visible in the entry photos - simply because they are a huge clue as to the identity of the maker, and I'd strongly recommend that you stick with that one.

    Here's a kit with the nib left out. Does that count?

    Derek an apart pic would show what is inside a pen, not in favour of a how to on any competition pen, also keeping it free of monologues. Liked the three pic approach used in previous competitions also Phils statement must be new and not previously shown. Peters look back to used rules could save misinterpretation. No restrictions on any kit opens it up broadly.

    EG a pen made from two Dental handpieces that used the two brasses and winding mechanism of a Slimline. Made for a Dental Technician.
