Default Hinge repair - foamy

Iíve replaced hinges before with fiber paper and with actual hinges.

my question - can I use photo paper as a hinge? If thatís not smart, what other options from home can I use (or hardware store)

I have no local hobby store anymore so anything I get will have to be through online. Iím rebuilding a plane and Iím stuck until I get the elevator re-hinged

Personally I wouldn't use photo paper but admit I don't know. I have read of some people using floppy disc material as hinges, also Monokote. But I have no personal experience with these.

If you wanted a low cost hinge material, I think cloth hinges are good. Been used on many control line models over the decades.
