I'd like to get the exact parts and images so the board image reflects reality... Can't seem to find 3D images for KiCad... any links would be appreciated....

Best place I've found for this is http://www.3dcontentcentral.com/default.aspx. You have to register an account before you can download models, but it's free. There are tutorials on the web for how to convert from a stereolithography file (*.stl) to a VRML that KiCAD will recognize. Usually you import the stl into Wings3D, assign colors to materials and then export from Wings3D to VRML. You can then pick up the VRML file in your PCB footprint in KiCAD. If you can't find a good model on that site, sometimes I've had good luck finding it on the actual manufacturer's website.
