How fine do you mean? "VERY" fine?.....
Look for stainless steel metal mesh coffee filters.
They are VERY fine. They would even be "in-scale"
on 1/72nd scale armor. And they are less pricey than
the metal mesh usually sold as model accessories.
( I am assuming that you can find COFFEE filters in the UK...lol )
The best selection of meshes I got (more than a few years ago now, thinking
about it) was from a proper old-style service garage that was closing down.
They had fine brass screen of a few different mesh sizes (much better than
the stainless steel stuff I picked up at a prototyping workshop, and also a
few square centimetres of finest copper screen apparently used in the fuel
filters of Rolls Royces (though possibly only vintage models now).
Maybe try your local car restoration shop if all else fails?

You find a very fine mesh in ex army Landrover filler tubes. Try going to a
auto jumble and asking about>
On the thread on shaking up paint bottles someone said to use the mesh from
an automatic transmission filter. Used ones that would only need a clean can
be had for nothing from almost any car transmission repair shop.
Hope this helps,
