Welcome to the home of Stoney Creek Designs

My name is Roger Malinowski. Many years ago, I wrote a number of articles for the "NARROW GAUGE AND SHORT LINE GAZETTE," Had my On3 and my Sn3 layout featured in the Gazette. Early on I did some work with other manufactures. In the early 90's I decided to manufacture my own product line under the name of "STONEY CREEK DESIGNS."

My goal has always been to produce imaginative and creative 1/4" scale structure kits of the highest quality. The kits are first released usually in early fall. They are limited production and sell out very fast. I do take reservations for upcoming products. NO Deposit is necessary, just a firm commitment .

Check out the sneak peak of the 2022 kits


CA GLUE - I now carry Stick Fast Glue both thin and medium. I recently switched to using 1/16"MDF for the sub=structure of my kits. 1/16 plywood was getting to hard to get. The thin glues are that effective on MDF but Stick Fast Med sure is. There is still a place for the thin CA so I carry that also. Even better they are only $4 per bottle

CA Glue Tips- I have 2 types. The first is your typical slip-on but these are so much better than any tips I have sold in the amazing quality and only 25cents each
Second is a set of tips. You get a cap to replace the one that is on the glue and 4 sizes of tips with a quick change, positive bayonet type lock. Can't come off and can't leak. You also get a tip that goes on in the same manner that completely seal the bottle. All 6 pieces for $1.50

Brushes In most of my kits I have been using and talking about using "MOPS" in particular Maxines Mops.These brushes have been DISCONTINUED by the manufacturer. Yes, there are other "Mops" out there but they are too soft. I am searching for a suitable replacement but so far no luck. Right now quantities are very limited.

Teflon Sheet YOu might ask what would I want that for? I have been using a Teflon sheet in some of my kit assembly. Especially when using CA glues. After to many times of having to pry a part off my bench I went with building some things on a teflon sheet. Particularly when, for example, I’m gluing a wall to the base with CA. some glue is bound to leak out. No worries if your on Teflon, nothing sticks to this. Very Handy to have around! A 15"x20" sheet is only $7.50 and will last a long long time if you take care of it

Ultimation Sander If you like tools and equipment for model building, you'll love this new sander . I'm not selling them but thought you might be interested. I set up a page for this sander, have a look

Attention Manufactures New supplier for laser material. Low prices, low minimums. Widths available are 24", 18" and 16". He just added some fabulous 1/6" (1.5mm) MDF. See link on "Links page"

How-to DVD STILL AVAILABLE. Generally, it will be an introduction to PanPastels and how I use them to color or weather my wood, metal, and plaster castings. More than that, it will also cover building a laser cut which includes hydra-cal walls, from start to finish.

PanPastels -What are PanPastels? Just the finest coloring product made. If you think you have tried pastels (sticks) or powdered colors, you haven't seen anything. These are best quality pastels made. Finely ground and packaged in a screw top container.. Apply with conventional brushes OR specially made tools, which I also carry along with 28 colors. Full sets can now be purchased via PayPal.

Changes to PanPastel Color Choices- the set I had been calling the "Specialty Set" I have decide to drop 4 of those colors. I don't see a need for 2 Golds so Light Gold will be drop. Same is true for Silver. I myself only use Pewter ( a darker silver) so Silver will be dropped. I found very little use, in model building for a Blender, so that is leaving. Last one is the "Coal" color. Most inclding myself use the fine version so I am dropped the "Coal-Coarse"
Replacements? I am adding 3 green colors and one sort of brownish green. I love the Chrome Oxide Greens but I wanted some a bit lighter. A couple of these I had been using on scenery so that was the basis of my choice.
PLUS, all colors are now $5.70. No more premium for the specialty Colors.

For now I'll just call these Add-on Colors and not part of any particular set.

I just updated the color chart, Have a look

Price Increase - I have been sell PanPastels for many many years and have never raised my price but I finally had to, 25¢ in most cases. I just couldn't absorb it any more. Hope you all will understand the necessity of doing this.
