Are these cubesat structures made from gold ?


Just looked on the internet about some new cubesats, and there I found some 
interresting internet page where you can get some cubesate structures.
So I looked around, just to see what it costs, who know we can use it for my 
hobby sats :o)

But then when I saw the prices I was amazed.
Some 5k$ for a 10cmx10cmx10cm structure.
And thats only MSRP$ (Manufacturer's suggested retail price) what exclude 
tax, shipping and other costs that may be incurred.

Look at: http://www.pumpkininc.com/content/doc/forms/pricelist.pdf
Am I right they are made from aluminium or they are made from gold ???

Not something for a poor-man's ham radio engineer :o(
Are there any hams who can make copies ? :o)
