  2. Apply a vertical mirror. Use the Transform Docker to apply the following to create isometric front views of the wings. Horizontal stretch 86.6 percent, Vertical stretch 30.00 degrees.
  3. Apply a rotation of 120.00 degrees to both wings
  4. Dupe the wings and move them up vertically 1.00 inches using the Property Bar.
  5. Use the node edit tool to break the nodes at the points shown. Break apart and delete the upper lines. Use the straight line pencil tool to close the objects.
  6. Use the trim command to achieve the illustrated effect.
  7. Rotate back 120.00 degrees (The completed version is shown with a white fill for reference only.
