This might help.  She does the tissue/masking thing with the cockpit starting at about 2:45 in the video.

Jam tissue paper into the wheel well and put some masking tape over the top so that it is flush with the surface.  Use a knife to trim away the excess masking tape so that only the wheel well is covered. That should prevent any paint getting in.

So did you finish it?  Post a pic please.
Unfortunately, no.

I've been put off because I've attached the landing gear and so it's "open"...so I have to work out some way of making it so when I paint, I don't get paint inside the wheel bays or on the landing gear.

When I come across issues like this, it stops me in my tracks. I procrastinate.

It's sitting in my drawer. What's even more infuriating with my attitude (when things like this occur) is I stop modelling altogether. I won't do another model until I've finished it.

So modelling has stopped dead...all because I'm "scared" of getting a bit of paint inside the landing gear bays or on the landing gear.
 :Loser:

So you've literally gotten "wrapped around the axel."   :magnify:

I'm sure someday the spirit will strike you again, and you'll finish it... :RockOn:
