So today I bought a mint Bombshell Insecticon to re-paint. After looking him over, there was absolutely no correct way to paint around the arm joints with out taking the pins out. After deep thinking about what could be used to support the underarm without ruining the design or plastic, a light went off and Sculpey III was the answer. Its hard yet soft, conforms to the plastic pieces, and will take the impact of the pin being hit out.

Hope this tip helps you with those non-flat parts.
