2-layer corrugated cardbord also works well for building surface.

I personally would stay with dope & tissue. Just pre-doping framework and attaching tissue would not be smelly enough to raise concerns. You could cure doped tissue in your/rental car. Air out before starting out in morning. Leave curing parts curing in trunk. This time of year should not be too hot in car.

Gooseneck lamp very good suggestion.

Consider going larger than P-nut, say p-30 (much easier to succeed). Also look into catapult glider, tip-launch glider. Finish can be rubbed onto all balsa surfaces with your fingertips. If suitable, there exists cigarette pack size radio DT that allows flying and DTing when small field (ball diamond)/wind directions dictate.

Laser cut, pre-colored all sheet models are offered today. They are rubber FF. We are actually living in the golden age of laser kits. Look beyond original likes. You can build 1/32" sheet, good flying models that eliminates odor problems while on the road. I enjoy building in my truck camper while camped at Muncie AMA field.
