Design Question

So after being up all night with a headache followed by Excedrin tension- Had some ideas for the nose and tail sections- more so just floating ideas. The tail section would essentially be the same thing as DD does on his aircraft- cutting off the lower portion so as to allow easy internal rudder and elevator servo placement, access and adjustment. I was thinking of doing the same thing in the nose section being as I have to place a retract servo and steering servo(never done this before-anticipating it to be a little tricky). Anyhow by having the bottom aspect detach I assume it would be a lot easier to set up, adjust and replace any parts should it become necessary. This section effectively just has the force from landing-nearly vertical- so I imagine it would be structurally sound with both magnets for position and 2-4 nylon bolts. Refer to image below. Any thoughts or input? Also any resources on how to attach the steering servo to a basic HK steerable retract.
