Kafka is much longer than a 146. It's not the best gauge of a 146 size. It is one of my favorite pens though.

New picture with new pen to see differences:

 

From let to right

1. Meisterstück 114 "Mozart"

2. Meisterstück 142 (1950's)

3. Meisterstück 144 (1950's)

4. Meisterstück 144 (1980's)

5. Meisterstück 145P

6. Meisterstück 146G (1950's)

7. Meisterstück 146 (1980's)

8. Meisterstück 146P (2000's)

9. Meisterstück 147R

11. Meisterstück 149 (1990's)

 

Note that 1950's Meisterstück 146 (celluloid) is thicker but shorter than modern (resin) 145 and even 144.
