I personally prefer warm white as well - looks more realistic. I ordered few 10mm white led-s few days ago
That will give me some light!

I use the warm light LED's in my builds of WW II models for the same reason, they look better.

I got them from this site on ebay ;

As for the connection , It's a direct replacement of the leds already used for the headlights ...But if you connect them to 7.2 Volts , you will need a 240 Ohms resistor ( like on the first and second pictures)
