Die cast repairs

Die cast repairs was created by sawatzky1
ok here’s my sad story. 
And let me state at the beginning I examined the photos of the tractor and all was as described. 
I found a Gilsonite Riecke D4 on eBay. No box and some paint damage but my plan all along was to display it. 
I received a box from the post office that was well taped and by the looks all was well 
opened the box and immediately could see the right track was off. The front idler was broken off and that let the track down. The blade was broken off of the trunnion. 
After contacting the seller with photos he didn’t hesitate to return my money. 
So now my question is can it be repaired? Is there a builder who might be able to do the repairs? 
Even if it’s not perfect it would be worth it just for me to display.
