Thanks!

After carefully measuring them, I used a very sharp X-Acto knife to cut the openings.
I then had to carve some of the interior foam away as to be out of sight. What was left, I painted chromate green. I then cut "new" windows from the waist gun positions I removed earlier. When all the paint was dry, I used the rubber cement that came with the plane to line the inside surfaces of the window opening. I used a vacuum pen to hold the windows as I pushed them into place.

After they dry completely, I am going to try to touch up the edges a bit. I still have a few more windows to do.

It actually was easier to do than I first thought.
