I take it it's basically a three piece wing. Flat center section three bays wide, and then dihedral for the outer panels.

For that type of wing I would build the three pieces separately with the joining ribs set at the correct angle for the dihedral. I also tend to build with full ribs at the joint, (possible pre-cut part way through the ribs to make life easier later), but with the minimum of glue to the spar, then the slot is finally cut to take the dihedral brace prior to assembling the three pieces.
