Hello, how would you go about sculpting half-toroidal shield plates e.g. for a model of space station? Similar to your UFO, but more circumferential; Quarian ships from MassEffect with their ring section are more appropriate.

but rounder, think thick ring cut out from a sphere at the equator. To describe more: a hollow sphere with the poles cut off.
I have trouble crating the radial curvature along with the circumferential one. Thanks.
Edit: this image is what I refer to:

I'd probably use a piece of sheet plastic, but into a circular shape to use as a form to sculpt over.
how would you bend the sheet have it stay bent? heating, a particular choice of sheet plastic?
