On the transparent windows problem, I encountered this on some of my repaints as well. My guess is that it has to do with the color index of the image. The easiest way I found to fix it is to get a fresh TIF image (original paint) and then just copy my new image to the clipboard and paste it over the original file. When I save this file it ensures the new paintjob is in exactly the same format as the original. Hope that helps. I know that things are spread all over the place in the tif. The same is true for many of the original aircraft. Some add-ons like the TBM thankfully keep the fuselage together at least. With everything broken up, I think it takes a lot of trial and error until you get the hang of it.
