Default Front tank bracket qustion

If I remember correctly, the newer kits come with a pre-made tank attach bracket that mounts on the fuselage.
Does anyone know what thickness aluminum these are made of?
Thanks in advance.

For the inboard nose attach? The ones on my -7 fuselage are steel. Roughly 0.067" including paint.

The older aluminum ones were 3/16 thick.
