dont know if this would help though you could try, modeling the left section without the round bit, then once your happy with that try extruding the round bit.

There's some kind of a tool which revolves a face around a selected edge... I never got to use it but it might work...
Does someone know what I'm talking about?
It's a polygon modeling tool you can use on edges. perhaps on border edges.
Benny

EDIT:
Found it: Edit mash>Wadge face
You need to have face, or several faces selected together with the edges you want the geometry to be revolved around.
Might help you
