I took delivery of an HO De 6/6 today, on running the first thing I noticed was that the LEDs are yellow, not mild but a strong yellow. Is this prototypical or are they tried to capture the effect of tungsten light. I seem to remember another thread where somebody was complaining about "p!ss yellow" LED's so wondering if its an error in the model.

It's quite common for factory fitted LED's to be either yellow or "white" (often the white are too bluish or cold looking).

For example I have 2 Roco SNCB 20's - the early one has bulbs & the later one has yellow LED's. The early one looks better. I will change the yellow LED's when I have the time.

There are quite a few suppliers of "golden white" LED's including DCCConcepts - these look far, far more realistic. They don't cost that much more so I don't know why they are not fitted as standard.

BTW - I have used yellow LED's for tailamps behind red lens - dulls the colour down quite well.
