Default Why are the nose colour different from the body?

JC Wing is about to release another F-15, a
JASDF F-15J Eagle, 304th TFS, 40th Anniversary 2017(JCW-72-F15-005)



Clearly the nose and the tip colours are different from the body.
Here's a pix of some real planes.



Can anyone tell me why they choose to have the nose of different colours.

Different type of paint and material is used on the nose cone. One that doesnt interact or interfere with the radar, which is placed in the nose cone.

Nose cone on modern jets is coated with synthetic rubber.

Well this F-15E's nose has the same colour as its fuselage.

^ Different radar, different user, etc. Sometimes it's also a logistics issue, you'll see F-15Es using C model radomes, etc.
