Default Fairing Lights

On some recent videos, I've been seeing what is best described as fairing lights - they sit on the fairings behind the cab. Anyone know where to get these? Are they powered off of the same battery? How do you control them (on/off)?

I don't know, the one in top at 3:50 looks kinda like a bus bar stack of Surface Mount leds.

Is this your light?

Should be able to drive them off an output port on a lighting controller, or a hacked servo board (remote switched), or an unused port on the RX (on if RX is on)

Image search for 'Tamiya 1/14 truck lights'

Not sure - but that could be it - thanks Friz! Hoping those lights aren't for a specific model, like the Scania. I have 3 trucks asking for a pair (Knight, Aero and Cascadia).

Anyone ever dealt with Aliexpress before?

I haven't. I've messed with wish and banggood, but not ali. I know it's kinda like an 'amazon' for buying chinese things, but that's about it.

While i was working through images i noticed they had a lot of other light in strip configurations. Stuff like under the body kit fairings, under bumpers.
