What if I were to skip painting altogether?

Say I was building a Master Grade kit and wanted to try this in lieu of painting:

1. Sand all the parts and spray a clear coat of enamel over them.
2. Do the panel lines using a watered down acrylic.

I figure if I spray an enamel clear coat over the entire model, it will induce the capillary action when I use an acrylic wash for the panel lines.

If I sand and polish the parts well enough initially, who will know the difference?

Just something I've been contemplating.  Please give me your thoughts.
