A really simple question this time.

For a kit like the Revell Snap-Tite Easy-Kits, which say "pre-decorated plastic parts molded in color", any finishing coats should be entirely harmless, no?

I'm thinking of just applying a gloss coat, a wash coat, and a matte coat to get that "wargamer" finish.

I predict no ill effects. Amirite?

See, for instance:

Hi Grommet

I recently re-decorated one of the kits without any issues to the body work, however I wasn't looking to keep the same colours but I don't see why to do so would cause a problem.

I did a Future/Black ink wash followed by a matt spray on a couple (a Kamov and Apache helicopter) and they came out fine over the top of whatever they've been painted with.
