    A new bunch of parts wrapped around (and in) an Olympos MP200A

    Fixed, it's obvious. At the same time making less space for convenient work;) I'm glad that the curve is remained:) Basically, it's now just tall trigger style of one grip/pull position with the offset to back side (very questionable). Did you imagine how you're going to move your finger with such a trigger design?:)
    I'm glad the thought on improving are not leaving you, in arguing the truth is born;)

    It would be great if the things would be so easily changed while working at the lathe and the miller. Just a few strokes of the eraser and the pencil, and things are done!:)

    You've got it!:thumbsup: And called it "Marry me edition":):D
    And one this appears in my mind - Colani "spirit".

    A few more designs, and you'll have to draw another AB for the reason of having a hole from the erasing:)

    I learned to draw by putting holes in paper with an eraser :)

    Why haven't I ever seen this?? Now that's a cool trigger. Cult of paint design for modelers. I want one for my Iwata!

    For making the trigger like this for you one needs to have custom ordered cutter for the miller:) I mean exactly the same top shape.

    I'm pretty sure, that for at least one position of the finger on the trigger, this design will cause pain in the finger.
    One thing is making the designs, another is testing them and searching for convenient and effective one. Ergonomics, you know;) It's possible to make dozens of the designs, but how many would work?

    OK. I think, the right direction is aztek's concept, not exactly the same, but similar. That's what I'm going to try soon.
