Hello! Well I was not planning on this being a wingtip BUT it worked so well for me that I thought some of you might be able to use this technique, I was putting a pair of specklebellys together this past weekend and did not realize I was out of the gauge of wire which I normally would wire the wings with, I ended up improvising with some lighter gauge wire and it worked very well, It also made the manipulation of the wires while assembling and positioning relatively easy as compared to one heavy wire, Heres the technique plain and simple Wire your wing as you normally would but Instead of wiring with ONE heavy gauge wire install two lighter wires as seen in the following photos, once taped into position insert them into the appropriate anchor point on the mannequin, run them through the form and embed one wire each direction into the form to lock the wing into place From there simply finish the bird in the normal manner. I have not used this method a lot yet but the initial tryout it worked wonderfully. You also have the option to try different sizes of wire to get the desired soundness to the wing. The following pics explain it as it is really rather simple. GOOD LUCK!!
