Correct, but to make matters more complicated, some fiberglass kits are very high quality while some aren't. For example a genuine kit from brand X might be fiberglass but it's very smooth in finish while a replica from a small company Y could have wavy finish.

Polyurethane is good material because it's flexible, so it is less likely to break. However, it's more expensive to prep / paint and is more prone to paint cracks because of the flexibility.
