Want To Know: Bending A Surface With Profiles Of Multiple Solids

I've attached an example project with has a case and multiple contained "revolve" objects. Side 'A' of the case needs to be modified such that it follows the outer profile of the combined interior objects (see the "rim" of an ExRolve for the maximum diameter). The resulting side surface should have a profile that resembles one half of a wine bottle profile. I'm just learning Inventor (and CAD in general). Your help is greatly appreciated.

My initial thought is to loft the XY profile of the ExRevolve's, offset the surface, and do something like replace the face of the side wall. Sound workable?
