If you had to paint a 1/16 scale plastic version of the following object, what colors would you use and what techniques would you use to apply them?

My best guess right now:

The turbines inside get a base code of a medium metallic color and a wash of flat black to make them dirty.

The inside of the exhaust pipe gets a dull medium gray and the spiraling kerosene residue is drybrushed with flat black or very dark gray.

The outside of the pipe gets a similar treatment, but with more black drybrushed on everywhere. Some traces of rust and again some medium metallic color are drybrushed onto the end and the edges for detailing.

Does that sound like a plan. At the moment these parts are still in the color of the filament I used to print them. In my personal color reference chart that color is known as 'light turd brown'.

(Yes, Glenn, I'm finally working un the Huey again)
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
