Thanks! And thanks for going to the extra trouble for a hand-written review. That always adds more information.
I'm a big fan of Wing Sung pens, especially the new old stock ones like these. The few I have are just darn good pens: as you say, solid, reasonably nice-looking, and good writers.

I am...apparently unable to edit my original post, so here are the photos:
The Burgundy red pen is the Wing Sung 236, and the black one is the 612.

Sorry to revive a superold thread. I am back into my fountain pen bug and pull out a Wingsun 612 that my son damaged somehow. The nib is pretty much toast now. It writes but very rough. Can I change the nib on a Wingsun 612? if so, how and where to find the replacement?

Buy a new pen altogether, the 612 is long since discontinued.

Yes you can, the hooded nib on the 612 is of the 3.3X18.5mm type and its pretty common one in Chinese hooded nib fountain pens, its very easy to find replacement from online retail, just made sure you order the 18.5mm type ( there are other types ). You can even order specialist calligraphy type ( aka Fude ) if that's what you desire.
