I always use Testors Model Master Acryl Clear. It can be bought in gloss, semi-gloss and flat finishes. Do several thinned coats allowing for proper cure time in between coats and you'll have no issues.

Polyurethane, or some other lacquer. Semi-gloss or no gloss for the more realistic look.

If you don’t want paint coming off, use a few coats of testors spray lacquer.

Try Testors. I'd done some customs (Buck, Dutch, H3 Chief) and so far none of the them are fadding. The custom was done weeks ago.
