"How critical are those angles assuming air gaps are all filled in?"
the slight angles of intersection for the interior panels are
from my own experience in wondering about and measuring "to get it right"
were around 5 degrees- nominally slight , not much more and actually a hassle to get exactly on a table saw
in doing a dry fit of panels , to be sure panels ends hit "hit the mark" with a smidge overly long
I found that some finessed application of a belt sander to make a slightly kinda close enough bevel was all that was needed,
as long as in subsequent the dry fitting, the panels end did hit the mark for fit wrt proper length.
the use of PL3 as the adhesive in the joint WILL create the airtight joint .
and by building the box from the inside out, you'll have room to apply a little more if need be, more easily as the build progresses
