After backing with white I add a coat of clear lacquer and then where the body will rub / touch I use gaffa tape to protect.
Some people use cricket bat tape, but I found it varied in stickiness

Halfords clear lacquer is popular, but spray it on too thick/too close and it will eat into and crack the water based acrylics. A few threads on here that I've looked at as I recently wondered the same thing. Best advice I read was a couple of thin coats of Halfords Clear Lacquer and dry it immediately with a heater/hairdryer. Had no problems using this method.

Forgot to add; let the acrylics cure for at least 24hrs before applying the lacquer.

+1 for the halfords lacquer, did have a bad experience with some Core RC spray can paint, sprayed myself a winter shell all florescent orange,backed with Core white,then lacquer. Craked like a bugger then started to flake off the shell within a week but never had a problem with anything airbrushed

I use Halfords lacquer as well as the Lidl clear lacquer. I warm shell slightly with hairdryer then put a fine spray on then warm and dry and repeat. No issues with cracking or flaking
