Not many things are needed to build the strobe light...
- Disposable flash camera (I used a Kodak camera with an LED light).
- TIC106M SCR or equivalent (5A, 30A surge, 400v)
- Neon bulb that strikes at 200 volts or something (I found in some other older disposable flash camera's circuit board).
Heres a data sheet for the TIC106 SCRhttp://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/20132/POINN/TIC106M.html
If you don't Know where to buy the SCR, try those two sites...http://www.maplin.co.uk/

- Desoldering pump (optional, but it makes desoldering easier)
