So I bought a automotive high gloss white for my base color on my 1:350 USS Enterprise refit and it looks really good on my test sample but my question is: can you topcoat a semi finish over a high gloss surface to seal the decals. Or will the top coat just flake off because it's on high gloss?

The primer is acrylic, the base is acrylic and the topcoat will probably be Mr topcoat or a other acrylic finish.

I can't imagine it would have a problem adhering, but if you were worried you could always key the surface with some fine sandpaper or 0000 wire wool.
