It looks great! But the only thing is that the colours look a bit weird, but it's historic accurate....Who cares?!
Actually, that's the color of the green patina
(rust if you want) formed when bronze (in this case) is weathered/exposed to air over a period of time.
And I checked that colors available for the cannon barrel parts, like 3063
comes in both green and sand green. The interesting thing about the sand green 3063 part is that the only appearance of it was:
SandGreen: 4 in 3450-1 - Statue of Liberty Sculpture (2000)
for exactly this reason, The Statue of Liberty has a green patina!!!
Also you are not likely, to make this MOC in these colors because of the cost of 40 sand green 3063s, bricklink Price Guide for the SandGreen 3063
Of coarse you could use less "weird" and less expensive colors...
