Here applied to the cockpit. As you can see I covered the bow MG with a small plastic cup.

For covering the small clear parts like lights and windows I`m using a special mask fluid.

Liquid mask is applied with a brush. It´s a fluid latex/water mix that can be brushed away very easily after the paint job is done.

As you can see the fluid becomes clear when drying.

I see that the liquid mask is very beneficial.
