Welcome to the home of Stoney Creek Designs

My name is Roger Malinowski. Some 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. I did some kit manufacturing with a partner in the early 90's then in 1994 I decided to manufacture my own product line under the name of "STONEY CREEK DESIGNS."

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

2017- 3 Main Street Merchants & A Country Church

If you tried to call me recently, please read this:

I have been out of the country for a few weeks. During that time the latest Gazette came out with my ad for the Main Street Merchants. I came home to 273 emails and 52 phone messages. I spent all day yesterday going through the emails but doubt I will get to all the phone messages. Some are duplicates, some I can't understand the phone number and or the name. So, at this ponit, if you don't get a return phone call your best bet is to email me at roger@stoneycreekdesigns.com

About Reservations - You can reserve a kit any time, with no money down. Once the pilot model is built, I will post pictures and the price. Then, I will email everyone who has reserved a kit that details have been posted. At this point if it is not to your liking, too big, too expensive, whatever, this is the time to cancel. If I don't hear from you I will assume you will take the kit when issued. I totally understand unforeseen circumstances. I'm just asking, if at all possible, try not to wait till the kit is in the box and I'm ready to ship to cancel your reservation.

NEW PANPASTELS My selection of PanPastels has undergone some major changes. First, The 28 Base colors have changed slightly. I dropped Turquoise Shade and replaced it with Red Iron Oxide. Now the 7 piece "Primary Set" includes a red. But wait, didn't Red Iron Oxide used to be in the "Rust & Corrosion Set"? Yes, but I always thought it was too red so now it has been replaced with Permanent Red Extra Dark which is much more appropriate for rust..
A NEW SET - Locomotive & Rolling Stock. 7 specially selected colors for weathering your locos and rolling stock. Six of the colors are taken from the standard set BUT the seventh is "COAL_FINE". Huh? Yes Coal! This stuff is remarkable. When brushed onto a plastic coal load or actual coal, it looks more like coal than coal.
NEW SET #2 - These are "Specialty Colors. Colors such Gold (2 shades) Coal (2 variety) Silver (2 shades) and Blended. Blender? I was going to say think of this as thinner for PanPastels but it doesn't dilute the color at all. Aids in spreading the color without loosing intensity. Colors in this set are $6.00 per color
Check out the new COLOR CHART

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.

PanPastel Set for Beginners- Many of you have asked what colors I would recommend to get started. In response to that I now offer a "Starter Set"

Boiler Shed to Crossroads page  Freight cars and most Crossroads kits have been gone for a while now but I moved the Boiler Shed from last year into this category, so it will still be available.

On-Line Payments - PayPal buttons seem to be working perfectly. I can also take credit cards but not on-line. Would suggest you call with your card information

Resrving a kit -Please send an email to reserve any kits this year. The reserve links on this site are nothing more than an email links, they do not automatically reserve a kit for you when you click on it. IF the link doesn't open on your system, just send an email from whatever device you are using and tell me which kits you want to reserve. Don't forget to include your shipping address.

NEW PRODUCTS I have added another Hunterline stain. Sandalwood Brown. This what I used on the new drill rig. I didn't want the wood to look too weathered and old. This did the trick
I now carry the best kneaded eraser made. Perfect for anyone using PanPastels. Made by Faber Castell. Come in a plastic case to prevent it from drying out.

Vellum roofing discontinued -Both styles of vellum corrugation are discontinued.

Whats up for 2017 3 Commercial Buildings and a Country Church. These will be very limited edition. Only doing 50 of each. Trying my best to keep each around $100 but don't want to compromise quality for price.

Colorado Mine & Milling -The HO Mill is still available. I have a PayPal button on the ORDER page

PayPal buttons. I hopefully have these corrected. The only ones that had trouble were the ones for corrugated roofing. I reconfigured these to two buttons. One for 8' wide sheets and one for 10'. There is a drop down menu to select what material you would like. They have worked on numerous test.

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) basswood plywood. See link on "Links page"

Silver Oil Pastel. As mentioned above, a key element in color my new roofing is a silver oil pastel. To make things easy I have them available now in addition to the PanPastels

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 hydracal walls, from start to finish.
