Hi Leif
Hope I can offer some help, but forgive me if I'm telling you stuff you already know.
Your templates will be easier to bend to shape if they are not as deep (not as wide) also you can start by cutting them curved, so they need less stretching/shrinking.
I agree that a hollowed stump can get a lot of shape in as it stretches and shrinks together, it is then smoothed out on the wheel.
Regarding reverse curves you have made a good start and I'm sure you know it is achieved by stretching the edges. I have shown some pictures of a reverse I did just on the wheel. Though it is 1.6mm 1100 Ali (half hard), which is easier then the steel you are using.
Stick with it.

Thanks David, no i am greatful for all hints i can get, i am a noobie on real metalwork, i have only used hammer and handtools in smaller parts earlier and welded them together when i repaired my cars not as pro just as a hobby for many years.I had a dream i have a chance to buy some better tools but could not afford that when childs was younger. Now when they have leaved the house i have the time to spend and build my machines just for fun and are trying to
learn metalwork the right way
Again thanks for your advices, i am greatful for all help i can get from more skilled metalworkers and will try to do it as you say
