A dry erase marker works ( after about 48 hours of cure time )  EkoPoly premium can be used to create a dry erase type surface.  Heck you can have your kids draw all over the airplane and it wipes right off.

If the paint is only a few days old avoid using plastic to mask off the airplane with because it will weld it's self to the fresh paint.  

Put the paper on first using the green masking tape and come to within 1/4" of the intended trim line.  Then after all the paper has been put on the airplane use the 1/2" wide blue vinyl 3M Fineline tape over the green masking tape bridging the 1/4 gap to the intended masking point. That way you can pull the Fineline tape right after shooting the trim color without having to pull all the paper off the airplane
