Where can I get some of this?

My dearly departed father passed on all his Model making bits to me and I've been slowly getting to grips with all the bits and pieces I inherited.
I found some hinge strip in one of his boxes of bits and it looks interesting. I'd like to use some for ailerons on a glider I'm building as it fills the gap totally, so no leakage through the hingeline. It's cross-section is in the form of 2 blunt arrowheads joined at the point (see photo) and strip length is about 1 metre.
I've searched the net but can't find it still available. SLEC, Hobbyplastics (the new name for Micro Mold) and other places but no luck. Does anyone know where its available or used it in the past? Is it any good? Should I bother?

I have been modelling for nearly 50 years and have never seen a hinge like that. It's very interesting though.
Someone with a better memory than me might be able to throw some light on your quest.

Most model shops will have strips of "mylar" which is commonly used, or you can get pupose made nylon ones which are even better.

That stuff looks excellent.
If you track some down let us know where from.
