Try using sweep blend option..
1. Make an arc.
2. Take few points on the arc wherever necessary.
3. Then take planes at those pts on curve.
4. Draw different cross sections of cover on planes.
5. Then use sweep blend to join those sections with a solid.
6. Use Shell to make the part hollow. Your cover will now be ready.

I am telling you to use this method is because, if you change the radius of arc then the cover should automatically change...
