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 .

New Brick Office Building

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

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.

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

Poverty Gulch Distillery WOW! Did this one come out cool.(if I do say so myself) I posted some pix on FB last week and already over half are reserved. All individual boards over a 1/16 plywood sub-structure. The roof consist of real wood shingles. Price has been posted

Portable Oil Rig- Pilot model finished and pictures postednow. This is going to be a very small but complex model. It includes a Berkshire Valley long stake body truck. The truck is modified to not only transport the rig but supply the power. Price has been posted.

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.
