Is there such thing as a case sensitive search engine?

I'm trying to find out about GerMan 1/72 scale figures, but (of course) I get results for German figures (ad naseum).

I believe on google if you put things in "Quotes" it will search the exact string.

Letters, yes, but it's not case sensitive.

Probably there is no such thing. The search databases would be too big if they stored every capitalization variant.

Well, no, apparently.

I found a case sensitive search on theminiaturespage forums, and found my answer!

Additionally, Google so kindly removes all non-Alphanumeric characters from even quoted strings. Makes it a pain in the butt to search for some programming-related things, especially in Perl, where there are a myriad of variables that have no alphanumeric characters in them at all.
