The cockpit of the Millennium Falcon model was made by building a rough "core" (out of two round pieces of styrene in two different diameters, to get the cone shape) and a couple extra pieces between these two disks to keep the proper distance between them. I then wrapped three overlapping layers of thin styrene around the core and glued them together. (NOT onto the core though. The core is just there to get the basic shape and will be removed later) I then first scribed the windows into the cone and then cut them out. I used a piece of 3" tubing to build the cockpit tunnel onto the upper dish.
The escape pods were made by wrapping strips of styrene around pieces of 3" diameter tubing, and then covering the whole piece with one continuous piece of styrene.
