Since I've run into a problem like this before I'd be really thankful if somebody could help me out and show me the correct way to model this.
I think I'm not too far with a topology like this one:
- Begin with a cylinder, extrude up, scale and flatten to get this:
- Cut with the knife:
- Extrude up the top faces, then extrude these faces :
- Move some vertices:
- Correct the topology to get something like this:
- you should end up with something like this:
