Lakenheath F-15E - Nose Colour


Recommended Posts


Can anyone tell me if the nose colour of an F-15E Strike Eagle based at Lakenheath is likely to be different from the main fuselage colour?

I've looked at lots of pictures and I think that the nose cone is a bit lighter, however I'm not sure if I am seeing an optical illusion or if it is actually the same colour and looks different due to it being a different material or if it really is different to the fuselages Gunship Grey.

Any suggestions either way, and if it is different what colour would be suitable?

The same happens to the F-16's radome, you will find all shades of gray when you study photo's of the real jet.

So just pick an airframe and try and match to that.
