Buy them straight from Cattex, they're basically always in stock.
Cattex's zeppelin/airships balloons

This one is equivalent to the Rifco GL500.
This one is equivalent to the Rifco GL700.
This one is equivalent to the Rifco GL1200 (Rifco stopped making them so you can't get them anywhere else)

For the GL500 and GL700 I'd recommend buying Rifco ones if possible as they're better quality typically, but for GL1200s you can only get them from Cattex. Also, Cattex ships them with an appropriate clip. Not sure about Rifco.

Do you have to inflate them at the kneck end first or do you just inflate the whole balloon at once?

Definitely the neck end first, then gradually work your way back. That's your best bet!

I've been told that you should start inflating the far end first and work your way towards the neck, at least for the GL500 and 700. Think it is to make sure the part near the neck doesn't overinflate and make the balloon pop prematurely. But to be honest I don't think it usually matters which end you begin with.
