How would you paint transparent instrument panel?

This is a 1/72 scale model so everything is tiny. It will be a challenge. So I'm thinking about painting the front of the panel with the panel color. Then use a toothpic moistened in mineral spirits to remove the paint from the gauges, thus making them clear. Then apply the decal "instrument faces" to the back. But boy, this will be tricky at this scale. I will need my magnifying visor.
