I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that Steve uses Polly S over
Humbrol because of the different types of paint (acrylic over
enamel). That way the two colors won't "mix".

Polly S' Clear Doped Linen should be good enough. I've been using it
for years as a basis for CDL, and it's close enough for "WW1 Work"
(used to be "government work", but we all know how those WW1 colors
are :-o ).
