Once it dries the WBPU is very water proof. And it's feul proof as well, not that you're worried about that fact since your model is electic.

With the varnish applied you can then LIGHTLY sand off any fuzz and spray it with rattle can enamel for a final finish. Just don't go crazy with the rattle can colour paint. The pigments in colour paint are quite heavy. But a light coat along with some trim to make it easier to recognize in the air won't add much at all.

A nicely done job of varnishing on a layer of newsprint will result in a torsionally stiffer wing than if you use any of the plastic coverings.
