Default Window masks

Is there any easy way to make window masks for an rc body; I have 1/8th scale body that comes with no window masks.
It only comes with window decals; I was thinking about using them as window masks but afraid they have to much sticky adhesive.
Is there a better way ?

You could always use liquid masking film or master mask. I use the first as the master stuff stinks.

You could also use painters tape or masking tape but that is a bit stickier. Tamiya also sells a low tack tape but their stuff is expensive I only use it when I need to.

All I use is liquid mask , Parma . Just brush it on and draw out your designs , windows , and lettering . Cut you lines and pull each section when your ready to paint . I used to use masking tape and pre-made masks but with liquid your body will be a one off custom .
