reporter gene for practical class

I wish to demonstrate the use of reporter genes for 
showing tissue-specific expression, and would like to 
get hold of a transgenic strain of Drosophila for this purpose.
(e.g. with lacZ fusion suitable for staining with Xgal).  I would
be grateful for suggestions of suitable strain or strains which 
people might be already using in practical classes, and 
availability.  We maintain Drosophila stocks for teaching 
purposes only, but have no transgenic strains.
