I use silicone to make a hinge. Bevel the edges of the tailp plane and elevator. Hold the tail plane and elevator together at the un-bevelled side with masking tape or sellotape. Turn over and run a thing strip of silicone in the bevelled groove. Run your finger in the groove to remove excess silicone. You want to leave a very thin layer. Scrape off any overflow on the wooden surfaces with an old credit card or something similar. Allow to set. You should end up with a thin flexible hinge.
