The Hiro kits have a resin body and all the rest is white metal, photoetch, turned aluminum and stainless steel, etc.

I couldn't find a build-up of this particular kit, but this is pretty representative of them, in general:

And this is a pretty good pictorial of the contents of another of their kits, the 250GTO:

Scott Hards of HobbyLink Japan did a "behind the scenes" look at Model Factory Hiro that I found very interesting. If you have 20 minutes or so, you'll learn a lot about them and the process involved.
