It doesn't actually have torsion bars , so to speak , but swing arms. Unless of course it is a metal chassis? Any pics?
You can get metal replacement ones online from most tank stores.

Try tankarmy.com , there fairly good with parts like that.

Won't piano wire work? If you can't get a replacement, get some piano wire of the same thickness, it bends easily enough, and it's probably the same stuff.

Hi, If you go to www.heng-long-panzer.com they are selling Tiger 1 torsion bars singly for about 2 euros each plus postage. Don't forget to remind them that you are in the USA and not liable to 19% vat (Value added tax)
