Welcome to the home of Stoney Creek Designs
My name is Roger Malinowski. In years passed, I have written many 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 .
2nd run of Oil Loading about ready to ship
ROOFING NEWS- I've extended the Corrugated material by including a silver card stock. This is by far my favorite. I now added laser cut, real wood shingles. These are the black walnut shingles I have in many of my kits. I've been asked for a long time to have them available separately, so, here they are. Each pack contains enough to cover 40 sq. inches.I've made some to take to NG Convention. When I return, I will have them available here on my web site.
More roofing news.. I now have three types of corrugation available, Aluminum, Vellum and Silver Card Stock. All are available in scale 8" length and 10'. Over the years I've been asked for other widths, besides the scale 4". Well, here's the solution. I will supply these materials in strip form. Each pack will contain an 8" long strip in either 8" or 10" width. Precut packs contained 20 sheets. In the strip form you will actually get more material for the same price, $5 for 8' sheets and $6 for 10'.
Second Run of 25 Oil Loading These are very close to being ready to ship. Some of the parts come from Plastruct and they have a few things on back order. I was told they should be here in about 2 weeks.
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.
Lots of older Stoney Creek kits for sale. Check the Classifieds page
What's up for 2015- A small foundry, another DVD and , you ready, an HO mill. Yep, HO "Colorado Mine & Milling" Both will be limited edition.
Mt. Albert kits? Sorry, I won't being doing any more kits for Mt Albert in the near future.
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"
Products being discontinued and/or upgraded You may notice that some freight car and Crossroads kits are marked out of stock. As several 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 - 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
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.
