Thanks for the posting of this project, it has given me  some ideas as for such a build but in 15mm range for my own pirate games!

A lovely model
I built one a few years ago too, I saved myself the trouble of applying the individual bricks as the original was covered in a smooth white stucco finish. Mine was built to 1/48th scale as that was an easy calculation and matched the Wargames Factory figures that I intended on using.



My step-by-step is here (about half-way down the page) https://antonswargame.blogspot.com/p/adventures-in-blue-board-and-foamcore.html

Thanks. Yours is much closer to proper scale of course, mine being limited by the size of my vacuum chamber. I did consider render but I felt stonework just looked more detailed.  It would have saved me the time to make over 1100 stones though...
