LED Lights:

Here is a great sites for buying LED lights (1.5mm, 2mm, 3mm, 5mm, or larger, pre-wired, Flashing, Steady-on, Flickering - great for thruster effect).

Ebay seller: colorfulplace888
Seller from Hong Kong, best prices-cheapest, large selection, great service and fast shipping (usually ships to USA in 7-10 days).
Seller will include resistors (see listing) with all LED he sells. If you are going to connect to a bigger power source.

SMD lights:



Ebay seller: 24-online*2013
Seller from China, large selection, best price for quantity your buying. (Usually ships to USA in 10-14 days)
I have used SMD for adding lights to Gundam eyes and sensor lights.

Easy to wire SMD to magnetic wire.

Utube site: Steezy

*Made this jig and it makes it 100x easier to soldier SMD to magnetic wire.
Using helping hands with the jig helps a lot.
I usually use helping hand to hold the wire in place to solder to SMD on the jig.
