    I've got a couple of hairy sticks and some cotton buds, does that count?
    Oh, and a AB something or other, similar to Wojtek's.

    Mine is like the 2nd one in Wojteks post.

    I was having problems spraying the panel-lines on my stuka last week, I took it apart, held the cup up to a lamp but I couldn't see any light through the nozzle opening. When I want to give it a really good clean, I normally leave the whole thing soaking on cellulose thinners for a couple of hours and then spray more through it. But I decided I wanted to get something into the nozzle opening to clean it. I went up to Tesco to see if I could find anything small enough. Nothing in the hardware section, but in the dental hygiene section I found some inter-dental brushes, they're 0.6mm thick.

    I soaked one in white spirits and I had to turn it to get it into the nozzle opening, The amount of crap that came out was embarrassing! The AB works like a dream again now. I'd recommend getting some of these little brushes if you don't have any.
