I don't know this specific model but cloth hinges would be very unusual. The norm on most models these days are 'CA' hinges that are made from a tough but flexible plastic (mylar?) core with a thin cloth like coating on both sides that allows CA glue to 'wick' into the hinge slot and make a strong joint.
CA hinges generally work fine. You need thin type CA to glue them but you need to be careful that it doesn't run all over the place. A cloth soaked in acetone (nail varnish remover) will take CA off if it does run, but test the acetone to make sure it doesn't damage the surface finish/covering.
If it were my model I'd put in 2 or 3 deg of right thrust.
