Heng Long Leopard 2 A5 1:24

Hi there,

First and foremost thankyou for letting me join your forums and community. I have been lurking around for a few days and it has a wealth of information.

I recently bought a Heng Long Leopard 2 A5 tank for those bored moments. However it has been more of a stress producer since I got it.

The fault that is giving me the most grief is the Turret Ring Gear (judging by your definitions used elsewhere).
The gear has 3 broken spokes/teeth which prevent rotation of the turret.

The gear is a white plastic and is approx 2 inches in diameter.

I have tried searching fleabay, made in china and heng long sites for a possible replacement but that seems highly unlikely. Considering I do not know the technical reference of the part.

Do Heng Long use standard parts accross all their tanks?

So I was wondering if this community could illuminate other alternatives.

Being an avid hobbyist I was thinking about using plastic moulding putty (which I use for modelling in Warhammer), that hardens and can be carved into a shape and fabricate some teeth.

Thanks for your time, sorry I have no pictures I hope you can understand the problem.

You are going to have a tough time trying to find a replacement ring without getting a whole new turret assembly. Try fixing it yourself if you have the experience from your Warhammer things.

If you want a good 1/24 tank that shoots airsoft BB's the VS tanks are the best available.
Those HL 1/24 tanks are garbage.
