Attaching shower wall to tub and surround

I have laminated my shower wall with Formica, and am now wondering the best way to attach it. My bath was mostly taken apart when I got the trailer, so I don't have whatever pieces that may be missing. Would a metal extrusion work, riveted onto both pieces? Obviously, the goal is to waterproof, so I assume some caulking would be needed. Thoughts or experience? Thanks!
For some reason I can only upload one photo at a time. Will attach more

Ok, sorry guys, these all need to rotated 90 degrees to the right. Hopefully you'll get the idea. Photo of closet wall is posted- laminate on the other side. The weird line going down the middle of the wall is the copper pipe that drains from the a/c

My two side walls are Plywood and the back wall is the original aluminum skin. I attached white plastic panels using 'tub surround adhesive' by 'Locktite'. Then pressure fit the plastic corner strips with a dry test. Then caulked the corners and placed the strips over the caulk. Once dry, caulked the edges of the strips where they met the walls and also caulked where the walls met the shower pan.

I hope that helps.

Wow, that looks great! Where did you get the plastic corner strips? And what type of caulk did you use? Thanks!

Corner strips are a polystyrene moulding. I used 9/16 x 1/4 shoe moulding. However a quarter round or any other size or shape could be used, depending on the gap you need to cover. The caulk was also a 'Loctite' product. 'tub and tile ultra sealant'. It bonds to just about anything and is mold resistant.
The tub surround adhesive is called 'power grab' by 'loctite'.

Sorry, moulding can bought at places like Lowes or Homedepot.
