Tell me do the Nikon's D300s and D700 like this or only the D7000/D600..

Sorry, can't. Nikon's top line cameras use a unique 'monocoque' construction, where the 'shell' forms part of the 'chassis', quite unlike the traditional Canon construction of a structural mirror box with a shell applied to it. We can see this construction in the current line:
D4:

D800:

D700:

D300s:

However, you can console yourself with the though that most of the outer panels of any Nikon (the bits you can't see in these pictures) are plastic, including the D4.
