I've never touched a resin kit. It could be a compatibility issue between the primer and paint.
Are you on any moddeler forums? You may find a more conclusive answer there.

The Model Cars Magazine forum is the most active, and would be my first go to.

could be incompatible paints, but if it's being peeled off by tape either the tape is too strong or the paint isn't getting enough bite to the previous layers.
since you said you sanded it before painting, it should be getting a good key and you said you used low tack tape.

What layer peeled off? Did you sand the yellow before taping it up? (you can bring back the shine afterwards with polish).
