What thickness are most etched passenger car sides?

I tried googling stuff but couldn't seem to find the info.  I have some styrene sides but no brass or stainless.  Right now I have a .2mm sheet that I'd like to add a test side too. 

Thanks,

Jason

The brass sides that I have measure 0.009" thick.  For comparison, the laser-cut plastic sides I have measure 0.015" thick.  Both are for smooth-side, streamlined passenger cars.

Roberto Martari's exquisite stainless sides use .3mm stock (about .011").
