Steven, before you do hide the brick/blockwork take a look at some of the workmanship over in the M.E. (Up, down, in and out) I wouldn't worry one jot about your scribing! You might even loose a bit of 'Authenticity' if you rendered it.....I have had a good hard look at the inscribed brickwork and it simply does not pass muster - grout lines are far from straight in certain places and it will show up in the finished version, so the facade will be rendered - a lot of wasted work - but hey, a lesson learned i guess
thanks for looking in
Just a thought.
Also, the picture you've posted of the mass of small rebars hanging down. They are not part of the main structure work as such. What you see is a steel rod 'matting' layed across the main structure. Concrete is then poured onto this to provide a flat, fairly thin concrete layer (Similar in principal to modern pre-cast Bison Beams), so I would suggest just a line of thick bars protruding out would suffice.
