Picked this up over the weekend. The guy said he had another that looked like a P38 that he gave to his neighbor.  Lucky neighbor!

Looks like a 50mm shell (?) for the fuselage, but of what material are the wings and stabilizers made? Something also brass, or aluminum, cooper. steel?

I have a P38 done out od cartridges.

The wings were typically made out of brass cut from larger casings
