borax 20 mule team model

20-mule team Borax ready for another desert run
I am planning on building the Borax 20 Mule Team model. I want to airbrush the mules, wagons, undercarriages, and water tank. Can you please suggest accurate colors for airbrushing. After painting and detailing, I want to weather the mules, undercarriages, wagons, and water wagon. I plan on using Doc O'Brians colors. I plan on scaping the board that the model goes on. (45" x 3 1/2") Any suggestions on correct color (Paint) and weathering techniques would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for this consideration.
SMH Responds Rick, I envy you on this project and wish I could find a model of the 20-mule team. It would be ideal for a narrow shelf in my office.
I have done some research to help you make color choices and have posted several photos at:

Keep me posted. I would very much like to run photos of your finished model. This is one of the unusual ones.
