(only holes in the fuselage). Without wanting to cut & glue each window, does anyone have an alternative idea for "filling" these in?

Fill windows and use window decals.

October 12 2017, 9:50 AM 

Glue styrene strip on inside of fuselage halves behind windows. When they are dry, fill windows from outside with favorite putty/filler and sand smooth. Paint, then apply window decals. Window decals are available from several sources.

In 1/144 scale, clear fuselage windows can be more trouble than they are worth.

Even easier...

Stick some plastic packing tape on the outside of the fuselage and fill the windows from the inside with either CA or Alumilite or other resin. Remove the tape when cured, give it a light sand. You may have to fill small voids, use more CA or resin...
