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.

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.
