Hi!
You should not have use CA glue! When you want to reinforce a thin balsa surface, instead you should have used 24-30 hour epoxy (or polyestser resin) and 25gram glass fiber.
All plastic films are easily stuck to a balsa surface covered with thin glass fiber. Here is how I rebuilt and recovered my "Viper" Q-500 racer using 24 hour epoxy,brown micro balloons and 25g glassfiber when the tail got cracks.Covering is Oracover (Ultracote to you Americans).
Plastic film does not stick to a primed surface!
