Default Covering question

I have never covered a plane so I am not good at it. I have an ARF and would like to re-do some parts. My 1st concern is being able to cut the curved shapes. I can't imagine doing it with an exacto knife and having the curves come out nice an smooth. So how do I cut the shapes? I will cover the rainbows with a matching blue (see rest of plane).

Also once the pieces are cut can I just use that covering solvent and avoid the iron? I'm not good with irons, I always get air bubbles and/or creases.
