One last question, spray or brush, and does it make a difference?

Like FusilierDan, flat for historical (including my 54/60mm plastics) and gloss for my toy soldiers

Prime in thinned flat rustolium flat metal paint. Paint with acyrlics. Highlight raised areas with a dry brush and lighter shade. Then brush on and shake off fairly heavy Future floor wax with ink. (compressive coat of wax). Don't see the need for a varnish.
