I can't say for sure, but I would assume it its the same scheme that has been used for years. If your kit doesn't say the exact colors I would guess they are the same as those used for Navy aircraft...FS36320, 36375 & 35237 Those are the colors I have seen for F-14s and EA-6Bs.

I'm not a know-it-all, but I was a crew chief on this plane for four years. The color used in Iraq are the same colors used regularly, unless of course it's the two tone brown desert scheme. If your interested in modeling that color scheme, I have some "interesting" pictures taken during Desert Storm from HMH-466. I could send them to you. My email is
Please mention something about the 53E in the subject line or I might not open it.
