    are you better off to cut some of the wing bone off on standing mounts?? I continue to have trouble with the bone hanging up in the wing when i try to tuck the wing in and put it in position ..appreciate any advice..

    clip the ball off… wrap body narrow and use batting to fill out side pockets…and a little
    under scaps…. fold wings and fill/groom flanks before sewing up

    Make sure you are pulling the skin back over the elbow before you tuck the wing. And like Byrdman said, you need a little smaller body.

    or dont detach wing skin from elbow and wings almost groom themselves
