Simulate it as a fin. For the Cineroc, Cineroc DV, and the Astrocam 110 models I've simmed up, I used a fin to create the look of the camera shroud.

If you're wondering how to model it aerodynamically, I've had good results by adding an extra "sim-only" nose cone with a surface area equal to the shroud. Looks weird, and not perfect, but using this I've gone from simming 120 ft over to within 10ft of what my altimeter said.
