In the photos of the ship, it appears the top/front end of the warp engine pylon is twisted downward/outward to get the nacelle level from a side view. The Art Asylum toy does exactly this, yet is able to maintain the centerline of the engine with the centerline of the ship from a top view.

Has anyone worked out the best way to contort styrene plastic to achieve this twist? Or is there some other method of correcting this flaw?

No leads, eh? Alrighty, then. I'll figure out a solution and post it. I did see some ideas mentioned on the PL board, but they weren't terribly detailed or described very well. I'll see if I can accomplish a medium heat twisting of the pylon by roughly 5 degrees top front outwards. If worse comes to worst, I can try casting the part in resin and working with it that way.
