Default Landing Light options

I'm at the stage of riveting my leading edge assembly and before I rivet it to the main spar I'm thinking about landing light options. I know the duct works light is probably the most common but it seems pretty old school. Looking for some recommendations for LED options. I'm sure there are some LED replacements for the duct works system but not sure it results in a very modern look overall. For simplicity I'd like to make use of wing tip landing lights. Seems there are some using the newer sheared tips with the integrated light. I've also had a look at Aveo Zip Tips and love the look of them but they're NOT cheap.

Amazon sells a par36 LED light for 34.99 sold by Handxen that some guys have used and like. I am planning on getting them when the time is right. Was going to post the link to it but it was crazy long.

Here's a short thread about my landing light...actually, this is my taxi light...I'm going to install a more powerful version of this in both wingtips.
