If these were resin parts, the bowing would be pretty easy to correct. Either heat them to 150 degrees for a few minutes on a flat surface (make sure to check the oven temp with a REAL thermometer) or boil some water, turn it off and dip the part in the water and then lay it out on a flat surface to cool. This may also work with styrene, but you should test to make sure that the heat will not be too much (I doubt it will as styrene is usually more heat resistant than resin). You may also need to increase the time span to get the effect with styrene.
