Finally got the wings on!!!!

It took a while to get the wings close to symmetrical. I was using the hair dryer to get the wings almost perfect.

I'm kind of curious as to how close to symmetrical should I get the wings? Right now everthing matches except for the trailing edge of each wing tip, they are 1mm off. I'm worried if I keep heating and cooling the wings I wont be able to maintain the shape of the wings. Also the left and right exhaust nozzels could be adjusted.

Any advice or suggestions would be great, thanks!

I think you'd have to study it pretty closely to notice any asymmetry. It's definitely not something I noticed at a glance, or even looking it over pretty thoroughly.

Fully assembled thunder bolt, finally! took about two days but I got it. Let me know if it looks symmetrical or not and if I need to tweak anything.
