The front wall is almost done (minus grout):
 

 
For a sense of scale, here's about where I intend to put it on the layout:
 

 

 
So far, I think it's turning out alright, but this has been like trying to make two different jigsaw puzzles fit together.  And the real hard part comes when I have to do the corner joints.

Jeezzus!!!
That thing is HUGE!!!
(and REALLY looking nice, too!!!)
Dimensionally it looks like about 6'X3', so I guess I'll ask what the actual dimsions are.

Looks good, Burl!!!

Burl...been following your threads for some time....simple question....can you describe HOW you made the molds? Did you make em brick by brick? I see on photo with what looks like a mold for individual bricks. Did you make individual bricks...and then build mold masters OVER the drawing you had? Can you kinda explain how you did this...step by step.

Also, you mention grouting...with what?

Once you had the molded panels done, what are you mounting them against (like wood/plastic/etc)....or are you intending them to be weight bearing? What holds all these panels together? If there is a backing...how are you gluing the panels to the backing?

Sorry to be so technical...but what your doing is damned interesting....
