howto model arch frame

I want to model this its the side for a football dugout.
Should I use simple deform or is there a better way to model the arc.

For the upper part use a circle, and duplicate/scale it. And for the rest just extrude vertices, subdivide edges, create faces, etc.

Took me a few minutes.

Nice work but the arc is not a nice round square bar.
Thats the problem.

Use circles with higher numbers of vertices.

It must be lowpoly model.
But unless the rear plate is still a bit wrinkled I think it will do.


The plate should look better with its shading set to smooth.

Thanks only have to model a bench and some textures and its almost finished.
