the pen should look like this when taken apart

cut rougly an inch of the pen barrel (depending on scale, mine is is 1:18)

now the confusing part, cut away the edges of the pen tip until it fits in the barrel (be careful not to split the barrel)

i found that using a vise is best as you can slowly wind the pen into the barrel

bend a nail and put it in the back and you will have a tuner exhaust, now just paint it.

thats a neat way to use everyday items without going to the lhs, it might be a tiny bit out of scale, but caught my eye and i might try it out!

probably is out of scale to all you kit builders, but should be fine for diecasts (what i collect) or large scale kits.
