Wright Flyer Elevator

Hi all. I was wondering if anyone new of a place where I could pick up an elevator for a Great Planes Wright Flyer or the colored Depron foam to make one.
They have discontinued all parts for this plane.

Thanks.

Try Dollar Tree or Micheals, they may actually have colored Elmers foam board.

I was thinking make up a balsa and tissue elevator, which would take about an evening to build. But yeah, the foam board works too.

I was thinking about something similar. Maybe cut it out of balsa and cover it with clear monokote and hinge the elevators with monokote as well.
