I think for most of us this is a matter of feel... However, you could also take pieces of cardboard and cut one edge to fit up against the body (say, along those red lines on your picture) using the "good" side of the roof. Then lay on the filler a little too thick and sand down until the cardboard guide sits properly in place... homebuilt aircraft builders sometimes use this method for shaping wingtips.
