Dear Diy/ I can't sleep trying to figure out how to make this plywood mold for this specific concrete shape, this are more or less the measurements of shape, shape is symmetrical.

Funny enough, there's another /diy/nosaur over here >>656238 looking to get rid of four of those.

See if you guys live near each other.

I just saw someone here that has these and no longer wants to have these. Maybe you could ask his neighbor.

What's difficult about it?

Set the coordinates to a grid, use Pythagoras' to get the one measurement you don't have, then cut and glue like you see Norm do on any project that's not square.

(if my early-morning math is correct, each panel is 416^0.5 inches long, and each seam 432^0.5).

It's only half a degree off of 90. You're not making a piece of furniture, so you don't have to have beautifully mitered corners. It just need to stay in one piece and not leak too much.

You could make a set of plates with a square hole cut out of the middle. One plate for the 8" square end (8") + (Thickness of plywood x 2) and another for the 4-inch end. You'll need a few more for the middle of the mold, say a 5 inch and a 6 inch.

Just attach those pieces to the plywood cone with slightly bent angle brackets.
