It appears they are made from stainless steel.
Maybe the painted pieces are steel.

I looked at one of these kits at the Toledo WEAK Signals show.
It was on sale for $419 but the guy wouldn't ship it and I rode up with friends in a smaller compact car, so no room to take it home, or I would have had one. Local Hobby Shop sales this same kit for $549
It is a nice airplane.
I have a 71 inch wingspan Travel Air Mystery ship short kit from Reese models, exceptionally nice kit!
I really like the Golden Age racers
Also have a Bud Nosen Mister Mulligan kit on the shelf awaiting the workbench along with a Monocoupe 90A by Ikon Nwst, 96 inch wingspan.

What are you asking for the BH Gilmore Special or is it for sale?
Why not show us what you have available from your factory in China?
I would be interested in seeing anything you have.
I'd like to see someone come out with a large scale Ercoupe ARF
You can find about everything but !
