Default Cutting luan board

Guys,

Trying to cut a bad piece of a luan board with laminiating fiberglass sheet (cutting horizontal about 7ft wide). Right now that piece is part of my front wall of my travel trailer. Below the sheet is a metal frame that has a slight curve (gap).

Any recoomended tools to use to cut the sheet?

Thickness of the board is 1/8".

Should I tape the line first so it won't chip when I cut?

I doubt a circuler saw is the way to go, reason being is when cutting the material it needs to be cut from the back side so any chips do not show, also trying to cut around a curve with one will be a challange.
An ossilating saw may be a better choise.
Mark your line and cut along the line with a utility knife to keep it from chipping as bad.
