Lighthouse pulsing light Answered

Hi all - I am building a wooden model lighthouse, it will stand 5 feet tall and become my driveway landmark. I have been searching for a good light circuit, a non-LED version, preferably using 120v AC. I would like the light to just do a slow flash or pulse and haven't found a circuit anywhere. I did find one SCR simple circuit using a high rated capacitor, but I am looking for more options. I have a coloured halogen which should do the job well enough. So have any of you brainiacs come across any circuits close to this description - thank you for reading / responding.

A real lighthouse should have a rotating light, so start with a small one as used of emergency vehicles, they are available in various sizes.
A simple motor spins a reflector around the lightbulb....
