Default Spraying Clear Coat

I've finished my first big spray painting job and the finish came out ok. I'm debating whether to clear coat it or not. It's been painted with Behr's semi gloss interior paint using a Porter Cable HVLP gun and the plane is gas, not glow. What would be the reasons to clear coat it? If I clear coat it, I would like to use Varathane waterbased poly unless someone has a better suggestion in a waterbased product. Does it have to be thinned? How many coats and how thick should the coats be?

Any advice would be appreciated.
