Center rib =root rib.-my bad.
One more time...lol Draw a center line on each rib,front to back.(root,and tip)

At the root end of the core,fasten the template securely on the 1-1/2 in core centerline.

You're right-the leading edge should be at the same height at the center and tip. So the leading edge of the template will be at the 1-1/2 " line of the foam.
On the tip,raise the trailing edge of the template the amount you want it washed out.

But wait-is this a tapered wing?-Then the tip template needs to be moved back to the top view leading edge.,still with the same washout.
