The 50 W Halogen bulbs in my winglets are what they call dichroic; the light goes out the front - the heat goes out the back; and they DO get very hot.
They are in a sealed compartment simply carved out of the lower winglet foam , a lightweight Al bracket and a bit of heat moulded acrylic as a cover.
Behind the bulb and to protect the blue foam from heat, I have a tiny square of fiberfrax. No heat damage in many years of use (including hot daytime use as wig wag lights).
LED lights run much, much cooler and as I mentioned earlier, well designed ones come with internal heat management, to protect the LED electronics not anything external.
