Thin walled print - vertical artifacts

I am trying to print with a single perimeter shell which is 0.4 mm thick using my Prusa I3 MK2 and a 0.4 mm nozzle.

Thin Walled Wing Printing

I am trying to print a wing section consisting of a single perimeter skin supported by ribs arranged in a criss-cross pattern.
