-try inverting the rearmost polygon
-try unsing the polygon tool to connect between vertices rather than edges, so that you can dictate the direction in which the polygon in created.

alright but i tryed connecting to a vertice at the end i get a messeage to invert or countinue with double edge that the only i get it to work

That's ok. That's the tool trying to help you out - it's telling you that one of your faces is inverted relative to the others, so choose invert. You should get a nice result. Choosing double edges will result in discontinuous faces - ugly!
