Default Hairline cracks in vintage epoxy finish

Greetings -
I have a vintage Dirty Birdy with an epoxy finish that has a few hairline cracks.
I didn't build it, I don't have the matching paint, and no, I'm not going to refinish it. The rest of the model is beautiful.

I'm looking for tricks or secrets to filling in such cracks.
My only goal is to ensure that the cracks don't grow, chip, or absorb fuel or oil.

Any recommendations?
My first though is thin CA wicked in with a syringe...

Thanks!!
