I saw some video of this earlier. It's made of carbon fibre composite, but for the authentic look the molds have little bumps so it looks like rivets.

Also impressive that it manages with an order of magnitude less power than the real thing. Granted it's 70% scale, a lot slower, doesn't need to carry massive amounts of fuel, guns and armor. But still.
 
Yes, carbon fiber. I think they probably should have made it an H model or perhaps even an F or a J and it would have looked even more authentic.

As it is, It looks good enough to be used in movies.

Quick Build Kit is $225K. Vne is 216 Kts. Max take off weight is 750 KG, only 390 lb more than my Ercoupe, and it is about the same size, 4 ft shorter wingspan.
