Where do i find models for ngspice?

Managed to get the simulator to output graphs, but it seems i need libfiles for ngspice to simulate componets.
Where can these be found?

KiCad/ngspice do not provide models, due to license restrictions and lack of maintainers, so Google is your friend (spice models). Generally PSPICE, HSPICE and (many) LTSPICE models are compatible to ngspice. Sometimes models by commercial vendors are encrypted. These cannot be used by open source Eeschema/ngspice.

For TI models, check for the product on the TI web pages. PSPICE models (use their *.lib file in ngspice) may often be found in the ‘Design & Development’ section of the product page.
