Turning a swept cylinder into a sheet metal tube

I was kindly shown how to get my simple sweep based funnel correct in the Question "Extending a sweep tube to a non right angled plane".  That is visually satisfactory but I now want to create it as a Sheet Metal model.  I have tried a variety of ways of attacking the problem all of which refuse to allow me to use Sheet Metal.  There will, no doubt be a simple solution, but I have not been able to discover it.

The specification of the funnel is shown in centre of the picture below.  It is 500mm tall, has an outside diameter of 159mm and is meant to made of 0.5mm stainless steel.
My latest attempt is here, drawn upside down as it seemed easier to sort out the split for the funnel cant at the top of the drawing:
Regards
Pete
