Welcome to the home of Stoney Creek Designs
My name is Roger Malinowski. In years gone by, I have written numerous articles for the "NARROW GAUGE AND SHORT LINE GAZETTE," built a few notable layouts and have done design work for other manufacturers. 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 .
Look for me at the Chicago O Scale Show, the "March Meet"
2014- the Oil Industry - I just posted pictures of the finished Oil Derrick model. IT exceeded my expectations. I love it. The reservations are very brisk. Lots of modelers reserving 2 or three. Thats why I broke out the Boiler shed as a seperate kit. You would only need one boiler to pwer 3 or 4 wells. Speaking of the Boiler Shed, wait till you see that. They will be followed by an Oil Loading facility and the Company Office.
Attention Manufactures New supplier for laser material. Low prices, low minimums. widths available in 24" 18" and 16". See link on "Links page"
Vellum Corrugated Roofing. The roofing has been wildly succesful since I first intorduced it. In fact, I have sold, maybe 4 packs of aluminum since the.It is black, well, a very dark grey. The color is just perfect for weathered roofing and , color, wow does it color easy with PanPastel and a silver oil pastel. I can't say enough. No more chipping and having those awful specks of silver show through. Gluing is also a breeze. I have posted a how-to on how easy this really is. Click Here
What!? ANOTHER NEW ROOFING MATERIAL? That's right. I soon realized I didn't want ALL my roofs to be totally rusty and decayed but still didn't like the aluminum. Finally, I found the perfect paper product that looks more like aluminum than aluminum does. Again, no annoyingsilver speckles, easy to glue and wonder ful to weather with PanPastels. It will be priced same as the other, $5 for 20-4x8 sheets.
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
JFacebook- Please visit our Facebook page. This is a great way to communicate about products coming events etc. I normally post things there long before this web site.
How-to DVD AVAILABLE NOW. For the most part, 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.
Chicago O scale show Also, know as "the March Meet" March 14, 15 and 16.. I will be attending this year. I will be showing and taking reservations on the new products and will have limited items for sale, PanPastels, roofing and the like. Hope to see you there.
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.
NEW PanPastel Set- Many of you have asked what colors I would recommend to get started. In response to that I now offer a "Starter Set"
How about some HO - Thinking of doing a few of my old kits in HO. Two that come to mind are Johnsons Leather works and ACME Dynamite. Any Takers?
Products being discontinued and/or upgraded You may notice that some freight car and Crossroads kits are marked out of stock. As a number of items are sold out, some will be discontinued and some will be updated. Most Crossroad kits will be discontinued BUT will be replaced with some new kits. Same is true of the freight cars.This does not apply to the Boarding House. I will produce more when time allows.
On-Line Payments - All new PayPal buttons and they seem to be working perfectly. I can also take credit cards but not on-line. Would suggest you call with your card information
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. At this time 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.
