HO M1 kit
(item # 8010)
These models use 33" flush axle wheelsets (not included)
They are designed to be powered using the motor and truck from
the Life Like RDC's.
They can also be powered using NWSL's Stanton power trucks
with an 8'-6" or 9'-0" WB. The 8'-6" version is the correct size, however,
the larger 9'-0" WB size provides a much stronger motor.
