Tom, it will be a couple of months unfortunately but I hope worth the wait. The monotone gold BB nib on a 144 is one of my favourite pens

Even if it's half a year or more, it'll be a pleasure to read when it's posted.
No hurry. One nice aspect of Montblanc fountain pens is that they tend to remain fairly static.
For someone as slow in outlook and action as yours truly, that's a blessing.
Whether a monotone gold BB or a regular BB, I'm toying with the possibility of a 144, in part inspired by your lovely images.
