I came across this site while looking for pre-built arch components and guess what direction My mind went!

The price doesn't seem to be to bad when you consider setup time and cutting all the ribs + materials.

It looks to be for all the arches and a 4 piece ring.

I remember bookmarking this site when I was looking at making my project (I went another direction, split roof) - I'd be interested in what you find out if you go with this solution.
