    Above is a video of the suckers swarming right before we sprayed them to hell.

    I'm sorry to hear that your granddaughter get stung Tom. I hope she is doing OK.

    I know you were probably angry but the time to spray them is after the sun goes down. They are all home then. The remaining ones may make a nest in a worse location.

    Sad thing about your Buick. I do hope the neighbor makes good on the damage.

  2. IIRC the PIF went off the rails when one member claimed a kit then there was a fairly long delay. In the meantime another member took it upon himself to put up a kit which sent the thread off kilter. When the last claimant returned he was severely CHAStized by other members here. It turned out that he was going through some difficult circumstances at that time, I believe it had something to do with a relative and their health. He did post up a kit but after the abuse he received from members here I don't think he is still an active member. 

    The PIF was a good thing but that is when I was glad to see the thread gone.

  3. Original Batmobile made by Doallser. I thought it was die-cast, turns out it's plastic. Even still I am quite pleased. It's a cool looking model and far better than I would have done. No box but it does have the figures.  It is nicely detailed and nothing seems to be missing. The original Batmobile has been my favorite and I'm glad to be able to put one on the shelf. There is a slight smudge on the hood that I may try to rub out...or not.

  4. A son tells his father, “I have an imaginary girlfriend.”
    The father sighs and says, “You know, you could do better.”
    “Thanks, Dad,” the son replied.
    The father shakes his head and says, “I was talking to your girlfriend.”

    I wonder if the inside of the body can be removed? 

    I've never seen one split in half but I doubt you would find anything besides an air passage. Being single action it's a simple device. You can replicate it with a blow gun and a straw in a cup of water. The air passing over the nozzle tip creates suction. That is why the hole in the jar lid is needed. With the metal cup it doesn't matter as the top of the cup is open.

    If you are getting air your issue is the needle and nozzle.

  6. Looking  at the pic you provided I would suggest trying this. Loosen the set screw and lower the whole assembly a little. Try to get equal amounts on each side. You may have the assembly inserted too far up. If it sprays after that you can fine tune it's position.

    So I bought a new Iwata Neo from Hobby Lobby, it works great. 


    That's nice but it doesn't solve the issue you are having with the H. Can you post a pic of the H? From the nozzle back just past the trigger would be good.

    My only grouse I that if a warning is given, I feel that it should be deemed 'spent' after a set period of time and deleted.

     I heard this a lot in High school, perhaps you did too...

    That will be on your permanent record!

    They should go away in a set period of time though IMO.

  9. The H is pretty simple. What do you use to clean it out with after you spray enamel? If you've changed cups and it still won't spray it sounds like the nozzle is clogged. I'd suggest seeing if lacquer thinner will drip through it with a (glass) eyedropper, carefully. If it doesn't go through I'd remove it and soak it in lacquer thinner for a while then try again. Once it's soaked for a while run a brush through it, if you have one. If you don't you may want to get some. I use the nylon but there are wire ones. Not too pricey and good to have.
