Asg 29 kit from rosenthal 1/3

I just receive last week an ASG 29 6m Rosenthal KIT. This is an almost ARC. The wings are balsa Foam and looks very strong and good finish, also the stab, and ruder.

My main concern is about the fuselage, it comes with two oval not round holes for the sleeve tube. This holes are 1/8 bigger than the OD of the sleeve, in other words, you have to do all the work in align the wings to the fuselage fairings and glue the sleeve tube.

I have tried two methods:
a) Making templates from the wings root with a exact hole for the wing rod, so I can align the templates to the fuselage fairing and fix the sleeve tube with the rod
b) Made a jig where I rest the fuselage and wing assembled together against the bottom of the fairing and wing at the same time.

In both cases the fin is not align perpendicular to the fuselage fairings , it is incline to one side.

Questions?
What should I do, align the wing to the fuselage fairings and glue the sleeve tube leaving the fin incline??
It is possible to straight the fin? It is easy?
What method for align the sleeve tube you think would be more precise?? A or B.

Please waiting for your important comments and suggestion.

Regards
Erwin Peters
