I want to build an F-100, but what puts me off is trying to get the burnt metal effect on the rear fuselage. Does anyone have any tips for trying to get this difficult effect?

The F100 really burns it tail section.
For this one I streaked dark blue and Tamiya Smoke with a fine brush, in a light flick of the brush, a wee bit like dry brushing. I went around the fuselage, not length-wise.
I then went over it all with a brush wetted with methylated spirits. Both the blue and smoke being acrylic softened and merged together

Same technique for the F104

Its not just how good your painting is, its how good the touch-ups are too.
