Inspired by the ET&WNC Azalea, a small group of modelers have built their own version of this classic.  

I originally made a seat for this project back in 2004.   
I made a mold and cast over 70 chairs.   
Half were given to my friend Doug in Canada.   

I started with the underside.  
I added the air, water, and gas tanks, as well as the required plumbing.   
It looks good, but you really can’t see it once the model is painted and turned right side up.

I printed some stained glass patterns on clear transparency slides and installed them in place.   

The side was painted with Krylon Burgundy.

I did a bit of work on the interior.
First, the walls.   I printed some red oak wood grain on adhesive vinyl and stuck this on the inside walls, just to give it a more finished look.
I printed a carpet pattern on the same vinyl and stuck that on the floor.

I painted up a few figures and glued everything in place.
I made a partition and buffed from styrene and brass.   I used some of my stain glass pattern for part of the partition.
Lighting is provided by 7 LED lamps.
The railing is made from brass.
