Jobs for model makers

I just graduated from College and have begun the painstaking (much like animating) ordeal of the job hunt. My work can be seen at http://www.geocities.com/goose443. I have not however, been able to find any information on jobs for model makers in animation. With the computer revolution it seems this is becoming more and more scarse which is a realy shame. If anyone has any suggestions for where to look I would love to know. I hear the UK is in need of stop-motion and model makers. I could be wrong though. Thanks.

Do not despair. I read an article a while back that said, Because of the computer revolution model sets are in more demand. This is because the studios can have miniture sets built, Then have the actors matted into the miniature. Studios can save lots of money building minature sets...They like that!;)
