Depends on where the mud is going to be applied,(on the model or on the ground). Maybe be more specific.
There are dozens of different ways-
How about
mix up some fine powdered dirt and diluted white glue into a thick paste and dabbed it on the frame and tires to represent dried mud.

or...

Just Plaster - I prefer Dental Stone cause it has greater compressive strength, but any hardware store will have regular plaster.

Plus it's probably a write off?
Probably lots of cool things from your work world that can be used in the hobby?

I've seen on many magazines that they make mud with pigments+paint in different amounts+plaster or sand in different grains. Sometimes they also use Mig's acrylic resin. You can achieve a mud effect simply with flat paint+ pigments for dry mud or gloss paint+pigments for fresh mud, keeping in mind that the latter is darker and that a pigment mixed to clear paint gives you a darker tone. The trick is not to make a homogeneous mix though!

"Gips"

I use the Molto brand with good results.

You can use acryllic gel used for oil paintings to achieve a more "humid" looking-mud (Then you have to use more gel than plaster and pigments to colour the mix)
