You will find that Balsa Cabin call it C grain, but as a good guide, see page 3 on this thread where there are photo's of cutting wing ribs to paper template. Note the very distinctive speckled appearance of the sheet, it is also very stiff if you try to bend it along the grain. Do not use a lot of force when doing this as it may split.
That is why you only use it for rigid items, no good for wing sheeting
