Hello, Does anyone know how theses stone corners are installed On Porky's Place? Are they actual blocks or maybe styrene strips bent around the corners over layed ? Thanks Dennis

it kind of looks like cardboard, painted a concrete color, and used to hide the seam of the brick walls?????
just a guess.... would be interested to know also!

Bob is correct.  They are cardboard.  The brick walls are made from the Trains of Texas castings.

FYI... in architectural parlance those blocks are called quoins (rhymes with coins).
