I Usually don't fit most of he clear parts until the end. But as the fit around the clear parts was s bad I had to fit them to flare in the surrounding areas.

As for the pencils I just drawing on the model with them to create weathering, marks etc. They are also handy for emphasizing panel lines where washes haven't done the trick. The are best used on flat surfaces
