I think it's difficult to fix because of QC failure . But if you still want too, the wing will broken .

Just apply opposite rudder & it'll be ok.

The stabs at the rear look off too.

Put it in a maintenance hanger/stand and pretend its being maintained. You could also put maintenance vehicles around it to make it look more realistic.

I think you'd be able to fix it by applying some gentle but firm pressure from the side to straighten the engine and pylon. I've done a similar repair on another model (a 777 too) and it worked. Just be careful to only use enough pressure to get it straight as too much force will break it off... Good luck !
