Models are given by disk scale length:
NOTE: the density and velocity of the bulge component in these models is
given for a fiducial 1010 solar mass bulge. This needs to be scaled
by the mass given in Table 1 of McGaugh (2008) that corresponds to each scale length.
For example, for the 2.2 kpc model, Dbulge_2.2 = 0.40*Dbulge and Vbulge_2.2 = sqrt(0.40)*Vbulge.
