So tonight I decided to build up and paint the exhausts. I first painted the rear half Vallejo Model Air 77713 and the front half Vallejo Model Air 77703. For the burnt area in the middle, I used Tamiya Weathering Set D "Burnt Red".
I've never used the sets before and man do I love them for weathering.

What are the Tamiya sets?  Pastels?   Nice work on those exhausts.

Hmm...  the info on your link references “semi-wet compound”.  So these aren’t standard pastels or do you just apply them to a wet surface?  

They are like makeup, I suppose. Soft and applied with foam tipped brushes. Someone else probably has a better explanation than that!

Nice work, Tim, the exhausts look hot!

Interesting.  I'm tempted to try these.  Are there particular ones that you find yourself going to the most?  That "Burnt Red" color certainly looks the part for rusty steel exhaust manifold...

For me, usually the ones that contain soot, snow, oil, rust, metal colors. I haven’t used the burnt red or blue much.

I finished up the swashplate today by adding the 4 ID colors to the lower PC rods connecting ends. For the color stripes, I used Interdecal. 5mm color stripes and they fit perfect.

The swashplate and M/R hub were painted a custom mix of 2 parts MM Army helo drab and 1 part MM interior black or what I now call Night Stalker black.

I then started adding the same ID color decals to the M/R hub.

The hub of the MH/HH-60's are color coded red, blue, yellow and black, so when I found some decal stripes that matched the colors perfect, I thought it would give the hub and head a "WOW" factor.
If you go this route, you better have tons of patience.
All the decals went on great,  except for the PC rod and silver tracking label at the top of the rod. THEY WERE AN ABSOLUTE PAIN IN THE BUTT!!!!!!!!!
Just some paint touch ups and final gloss and flat coat and I'll be glad to call this done!

That's all for now
