Default I have an odd question ?

I have an odd question ?
what material is used for turbine exhaust ducts ? the reason i ask is that i wanted to build a sort-of-VTOL aircraft, it would be huge, and i wanted a pair of turbines for lift and a pair for foward flight. It is my own design and I have the duct work figured out , I just wanted to know what material i should use for the exhaust ducting and exit shroud

Default Exhaust ducts

Be aware that I'm not a jet flyer, so you probably want to talk to an expert. However, I do a lot of reading, and believe that most turbine guys use either stainless steel, or a heat resistant ceramic for the exhaust area.

It's a whole different deal than ducted fans!
