I think that highlighting *all* the surfaces of the model and assign them a 
single texture will do the trick, if as you say the model consist of one 
mesh with three textures. If you want to uv map that texture, then you will 
need to unwrap the mesh. My experience with Wings for that is not 
conclusive, but since I discovered the new ability in the beta of Silo, this 
is working fantastically. Other free stuff that do the job (they say) would 
be UVMapper, but I have no real experience with that.
