Looks outstanding! You sir, are a true artist.
On aircraft, going back to the early CFS days, if we wanted something "invisible", we used to paint the bits we didn't want to see pure black (0,0,0,). Make an alpha layer for it with those bits on the alpha also pure black. Voila, no can see in the sim. It's still done for 2d panels to see out the front. I'm not sure how it would work with scenery though, but it is a thought.
I've got an old CFS 2 paint for the simTech Do 335 (that I call ol' Bulletcatcher) that has holes shot all through it using this technique. It still works very well in FS9. Haven't tried it in FSX though but I see no reason why it wouldn't at least on aircraft.
