A simple technique to make a path follow a given curve:

Make a path that is a straight line between two points o the curve.

Eyeball where a tangent to the curve is roughly parallel to the path line (around the middle for a regular curve). Click on the corresponding point on the line, and control-click on the line to add an anchor,

Drag the anchor to the curve. Your path should be a line that is pretty close to the curve.

If it is not close enough, repeat the process for the parts that require it

Very often a single midpoint is sufficient, for instance the top of the wing is an easy fit:
