They are the motors I got for my StuG, it's currently untested but they 
should work.

Right.

Correct.

>Heat sinks, people mention making them from aluminium "U" channel, is the

I riveted mine on to the motor mount. The motor mount is a thin steel strap 
bent around the motor with feet welded onto it.

>Last but not least what do I need to know about bearings?

Get them from ebay, much cheaper then suppliers. Bronze bushings also work 
well for the wheels, and are much cheaper than bearings, unless you get 
lucky on ebay. I buy all my bearings from eBay, you can usually pick them up 
real cheap.
