Default What material is the tail end of an F-100 made of

I'm going to be starting an Airworld F-100 soon, Does anyone know what the tail end of the fuse (the area that's left bare and discolors due to the heart of the afterburner) is made of? Is it stainless steel or titanium?

Titanium.
Here's my F-100 which was built by someone else and it actually has a Titanium skin on the aft fuselage. This is a BVM kit.

Are you making a new exhaust nozzle for the airworld F-100? I'm not too fond of the stock one. Was thinking about 3d printing one and making a mold.

Good luck, trying to take shortcuts on scale stuff rarely works out.....

Another example of positive reinforcement from the Zeeb….who judges the initiative and extra effort to crate a better model as “shortcut”.
