Jim, smoothing the angle like shown would certainly help with bending the ply around the radius...............

The short one: Look at the curve on the front of the build. Whaddya think about that? Doable?
Now, a question about the 1/8" plywood and the hatch--and for that matter the roof.
What will work in holding 1/8 ply down? If I use tightbond/gorilla glue will that hold the skin down without screws/nails? I would screw the 1/8 down while the glue dried but take them out when finished, epoxy holes etc.
If that would NOT work (or not work for long) how in the world do you screw down 1/8 inch ply and hide the screws--there is no room to truly counter sink anything. As to nailing...I don't have a nailer and if I did I think nails would simply go through the Luan?
So, advice about front curve, fastening roof/hatch appreciated,
