    None at all? Humerus? Ulna? Radius? Both sides?

    Select the right size oak dowel and drill the ends to except the right size wire and epoxie in place. You can then wrap as normal. The whole wing can be rebuilt this way, by dowel size choice, articulating in wire and wrapping. I use jeweler's tow for rebuilding legs, necks and legs. Good luck

    Run a wire into the wrist joint like normal, measure the length of the radius of the other wing and make your bend there on the base wire. Measure the humerus length and mark it on the base wire. As crablover mentions above take some type of medium, wooden dowels, pieces of fiberglass/carbon arrows (thanks Brooke), tubing etc and wrap, tape or whatever them to the main base wire. Effectively rebuilding the bones. If you have pieces of the shattered bones I have used them and superglue/boraxed them back into place also. Just McGyver it
