It depends on where you are in the world. (I see you are in Ireland?)

Have you checked the Net for 'model shops / hobby shops' in your area?.
Try the Yellow pages also.

If there are no model shops on note within a travelling distance radius, search for model shops that do Internet sales.

Would 'items' shipped from the UK be too expensive?
