Default Matching Equipment in the Codex to the Equipment on Models

I am new to Warhammer 40k and just building my first Tau Army. I have the 4th addition codex, which list all of the Tau equipment. Unfortunately, the section on tau models doesn't describe all of the equipment availible in the codex. This includes the targeting array for the battlesuits and everything except the weapons and the sensor spinces for the vehicles.

Does anyone know where I could find some pictures of the equipment missing in the codex modeling section.

Thanks.

You won't.
Those systems don't exist in plastic, officially anyway.

You're expected to use some imagination, spare bits and what not to come up with some gubbinz to represent these systems.
I'll just say go and have a look around the hobby section here, lots of inspiration there.

And welcome to the forums. Have a nice stay. ;D

Thanks for the info.

Also, one more question, the models in the codex all appear to have some plastic inserts for eyes, painted red. Is that just an illusion? Because I don't seem to have such a part.

Thanks again.

No, its just a very, very good and complex paintjob

Those aren't inserts, it's gem style painting (highlighting/shading in reverse) with a coat of 'ardcoat varnish to add shine.
