Default Beacon lense and antenna question

I have several 1:200 Hogan models I would like to add beacon lights and antennas to. I did a search for "beacon" and came up with this thread dated from a while back:

http://www.diecastaircraftforum.com/...tml#post917396

Is there any new and or updated info on lense size, what to use, where to purchase, etc?

I have a Hogan 747, A320, & 757 I would like to detail out, not on a pro level just enough them pop a bit. I am also aware I can make my own antennas from styrene is there any pre-made or any easier routes to go in these departments?

Thanks for your time,
David.

Had some free time today and made a trip to my local Hobby Lobby craft store and Walgreen's drug store. I think as for my 747 wide body Hogan I may have a workable (not museum quality) solution...... Stay tuned!
