what brand of pencils did you buy? I don't recall hearing about these before.

Fine job on that car! I especially like the tack boards. :-)

Michael Gross and I were exchanging emails on weathering with watercolor pencils and I bought a few at Art Mart while I was in St Louis this past week. There several videos on YouTube on how the military modelers use them for scratches, water streaks, rust, etc.  So no need to repeat their methods here but I tried them out today on a Rapido X31A and enjoyed the exercise.  One improvement is if you overdo it a quick pass with a damp Q-Tip removes all sins.  Besides using the watercolor pencils I used regular colored pencils to add some light and dark spots to the panels.
