I have more lenses than I can ever use, but what do you use for the reflector behind the lens?

I've used the googly eyes for dolls available in craft stores.  They go any diameter, and they're the perfect shape.

I was at Micheal's this evening looking for something else and I thought of this question.

I did find some 7mm round mirrored discs that might work as reflectors....I believe that there was a smooth style and a faceted style

Hey Tom, I use these. http://www.modelmake...ijlff23ngb95jn4

They have a photo etched backing that has facets etched into them and then they have a red, amber or clear lens. VERY realistic looking!MVC005F-vi.jpg

Yes, they are in Europe but shipping wasn't too bad. I think it was a week and a half, maybe two weeks? They are good people to deal with. I've bought from them several times. They have all kinds of neat stuff. Mostly catering to big rigs though.
