    Never did it but why are you doing such a mission, I would stick to acrylics or tamiya/gunzo if the base is acrylic ...

    I would use acrylic varnish, but you can try a piece of scrap and use enemies varnish on, theoretically it should work but I would not experiment directly on the model ...
