The only thing I would question is, how accurately can you cut the material? Seems like you have about one inch 'spare' cutting out the panels - I've never cut large swathes of material, so I don't know how easy or difficult it is to cut that accurately.
Actually, another question, how much extra have you allowed on each panel to wrap the material around the frame? So, say your 16x45 panels, are they actually 12x41s, or some other size?
Can't really help with how much extra you actually need, but whenever I've done stuff like laying laminate flooring, the advice has been to allow 10-15% wastage - I'd see that as a starting point myself, particularly taking my lack of experience into account.
