You can try brush painting it...probably done on the real tank if it was hard edge cam.

Or you can use Tamiya masking tape to mask the hard edge and then airbrush the cam colours.

Or you can use "Blu Tack" or "Fun Tack". Just roll it out and apply on the model and then airbrush the cam colour. It peels off very easily and can maked multiple angles. It goes by many names:

Or you can use "Silly Putty" the same way as Blu Tack.

You can use the original Play-Dough stuff like you would use Silly Putty.However,it is best used with enamel paints for this technique as it will leave a film when you remove it from your target.The film can be washed off with soap and water or iso-alcohol when the paint is well dry.The washing may damage acrylic paints even if thoroughly dry.As always,test,test,test,until satisfied.
cheers!
