    In my opinion it doesn’t matter as long as your transition from the humerus into the shoulder is smooth. In other words, if you run your fingers over the shoulder there shouldn’t be a bulge or an indention.

    I agree but be sure to create your hole in the foam to match where your wire is placed. If our wire is on the outside of the bone and you insert the wire into the foam closest to the inside you may end up having some problems with the movement and placement of the wings. This tip mostly deals with bought forms that have a pocket molded into the foam
