It just occured to me: as it is "white" year may I use liquid paper (whiteout)?

I don't think white out will last too long.  Testors make model paint pens that work quite well.  You can get them at most craft stores.

Enamel paint pens are what I use.  I buy them at the hardware store.

Good tip Robo. I have used fingernail polish in the past. Practice on drones if you are not sure of the reaction.
