Here is the set I picked up from amazon. Maybe this will work for you (they are still a little big for 1:1000 / 1:2500 kits, but you can make do using the tips of the square/round files pretty well).

I play, I putty, I spray, and pray! Putty, sand, repeat...

 ;D Not sure if they make them smaller, I'll have to check, because that would be awesome for the scales I like to work in for sure! And could be what you are looking for!

If you have a Harbor Freight Tools near you, you can always pick up a set of twelve needle files for $3.99 U.S.D..

I bought a set a few years back.  Works fine, and is nice and inexpensive.  And if you get their 20%-off coupons in the mail, they end up costing even less!
