Default RE: CA HINGE MATERIAL

I'm not aware of what material could be substituted for ca hinges. One thing most users of the pinned hinges do to close the gap is this. With your exacto knife, cut a small recessed area out of your leading edge of the control surface and trailing edge of the wing/rudder/horiz stab where each hinge will be. This allows the hinge to recess into the surface and the gap will be closed.
