Hi gnt586, I'm new to painting I cannot figure out where the Alpha layer is to remove the windows.  Can you point me in the right direction?

Alpha channels can be easily extracted from and ( after being edited) re-imported in texturefiles using a great tool named DXTBmp.( made by Martin Wright ) 

See the Painting FAQ   Question/answer nr 2
 

Open the files for the fuselage in DXTBmp and you`ll  see the alpha-channel  in the little window at the right-top-corner of the program.
Choose the option Image> Send to editor and edit the file,save the file in your paintingprogram ( JUST save , not save as) 

Then choose the option  Image>Reload after edit and save your file to the desired filetype.
MIND when saving you can choose between saving with or without Mips ( Mip-mapping) , I usually UN-check Mips to have the utmost quality when looking at the plane in sim.
