Gusset/Rib Feature along curved surface?

I am wondering if a feature is available to model a gusset or rib along a curved profile, such as shown in my model image.  The way the gussset is currently modeled is not proper in the sense that the extrusion feature (the gusset) does not follow a curved profile, it is extruded straight but the sketch is made large enough to compensate for the curvature.  I am aware that this is not properly modeled, and am looking for a legitimate solution if possible.  Here are a couple of screen-shots:
