Just picked up a damaged TIE fighter. It's the 2006 version with large wings.
The wings are warped due to some type of placement near a heat source.
Anyone have ideas on how I might restore the wings to the proper shape?
Maybe blast them with a hair dryer and then set in a form?

What about putting something heavy and flat on the wing for an extended period of time?

You could probably hit them with heat (blow dryer/hot water), then do the heavy book method as The Professor mentioned!

Cold water could also set the shape, if you were so tempted to try and submerge them in a big pot of hot water,etc...
