Thanks Pickle.

I used a can of gloss clear acrylic over the enamel paint I sprayed on my GWS P-51D and it turned out looking good. If you used gloss paints I think you will get a smoother finish. My GWS FW-190 has thinned matt acrylic paint and the texture of the tissue still shows through, but that's OK because it has a satin finish anyway. If you have a glass like finish after painting I think it will be OK to give it a spray with either gloss WBPU or clear acrylic. Maybe test it on another surface first to make sure. Post your results here, it would be great to see.

I'm about to start another foam covering job, this time a GWS P-40.
