Ignoring a lot of good advice I've gone for OSB fascia boarding.

I will have '3 and a bit' pieces of 16" board 2.4m long as the front of the
roof is 8.1m long.

I plan to join (glue) the boards together along an offset to provide a
stronger joint and also to mask the join if possible.
However I now have to work out the angle of the join.

45 degrees seems a bit extreme with a lot of wastage, although obviously I
do have some scope as I have about 1.4m over on the run.
[Just went out and checked with my trusty square and ruler and the wastage
is about 40.5mm so I could do this for 3 joins and still have a small margin
for error.]

Any advice?

Also, any alternatives to epoxy resin for doing the join?

Wood will not be going up today because there isn't enough time to fully
treat the reverse then fix, glue, and seal.
Thunderstorms predicted for tomorrow 06:00.
Therefore I will be tacking up some black plastic sheeting as fascia,
windows and doors tonight to make the front reasonably weather tight.
