I would try any hobby store, especially including Model Train stores because they have scale cars for the layouts people build to play with their trains. There is/was a number of them in mid town, above 48th street or so.

My National Guard unit was called up for the Bosnia “situation” back in 1995-96 but we spent a good chunk of time in Wiesbaden, home of V Corps Artillery at the time.  One of my soldiers met a German girl from the Ost.

I remember this show. Jacko was also featured in some Energizer battery commercials. William Conrad did the intros. And that long opening was supposed to be part of the soundtrack album, provided the show was picked up for a second season. It was cancelled after 5 episodes.
