6 wheeled coach axleguard set

This kit makes a set of axleguards which match all our six wheeled 4mm coach products. These axleguards permit our kits to be used on sharp radiuses (about 2 feet or 500mm) without extensive modifications to the kits.

The kit consists of 3d printed parts (random colour) and card overlays. The plastic parts are made from PLA which is environmentally friendly. The kit is readily assembled. The images show our wheel set (D3D-01)  which is not included.
