Default Tig Question

Hey everybody! Been a while since I've been on here, went through a bad divorce and just got most of my things back. Trying to get my shop going again. Anyways have a question, might be a stupid question, What kind of tig rod makes this kind of brass/gold weld like in this picture of the miniature truck. I haven't done a lot of tig welding but wanting to do more with it.

My guess is SiBr - silicon bronze. (Not welding - "bronzing.")

Dont overlook the fact you can buy the same stuff as MIG wire and TIG with it if you are doing small or thin material. Good Luck.
