I'm not sure if you'll need that much glass on your buck. I dont think it needs to be as strong as the parts you make from the mold, as it's only there to keep the right shape, isnt it? 2 layers of 300gsm+tissue+flow coat should be good enough to take a mold, as far as I can tell, but I've not actually made a buck myself yet.
Other than that, sounds good to me.
I'm planning on a lazier option myself; chicken-wire + padding + poly sheet for the "buck". create surface layer of glass, remove from buck and then fill in behind to re-inforce the shape and create mounting points. I'm not sure what problems this will create, but the way you mention is i believe the more proper way to create FG panels.
