Alclad makes an enamel clear range called Klear Kote in gloss, semi gloss, and light sheen. Model Master and Humbrol also have enamel clears.

Testors made a black chrome awhile ago which was an excellent semi-gloss black, but it seems to be hard to find these days.  I have seen one of their small rectangular bottles called semi gloss ( or semi-matt, forget which) black.  I picked up a bottle but have not used it yet.

Forgot to say, if you are good with an airbrush, you can make a gloss enamel go down as semi-matt by putting it down dry and thin.  Or, you can make flat go down a bit shinier if you put it down wet and thick.
