Team Stone Heap

Our goals

We, the Stone Heap team, have been working since 2021 to design detailed and high-quality models for Noppenstein fans in order to create a unique selling point on the market. From the creation of PDF building instructions to the production of our complete sets, including printed packaging, to our various clamp building block drinks, our motto "Model making from nub bricks" is always at the forefront of everything we do.

Our range currently extends from PDF building instructions with a focus on terminal block trains in 6wide and 8wide scale to trucks and buildings. In the accessories area, we offer a wide range of SLA printed railway wheels, which have been custom-designed for our models. Stickers and prints from our licensed partners are also available. Outside the railway area, we offer a large number of Noppenstein drinks, which provide for the health of every Klemmbaustein city 😊

In 2023, an expansion of the thematic areas is planned.

Our vision

Our goal is to sustainably position Stone Heap broadly in the market. We are aiming for a mix of private customers (B2C) and corporate customers (B2B). It is desirable for us to become a qualitative online marketplace for PDF building instructions as a contact point for high-quality designs for private customers. Here we would like to attract more internal and external designers to expand our portfolio. In the private customer environment, we also plan to publish more sets including instructions and printed boxes.

In the B2B area, we would like to implement order-related models together with our partners. Here we focus on different target groups of possible partner companies. Our goal is to create unique and individual models for each client. Here we are very different from our competitors, as our customers have full participation rights at every stage of the order.

More details coming soon on our Stone Heap B2B page.

We are also striving to continue and expand our successful cooperation with our partner company: "derKlassiker". Another of our primary goals is to secure further licences in all product categories. For the year 2023, we are aiming for further trade fair appearances and would like to aversive our local presence in the retail trade via markets. As usual, each project will be promoted in detail via social media and communicated at the appropriate time.

Our history


Founding as Stone Heap Instructions


SBB licence: Our first official licence comes from the Swiss Federal Railways. From now on, this licence allows us to use the original names in our sets, unlike some of our competitors, and to offer stickers and prints of the SBB logo in addition to the PDF building instructions.


Expansion of the accessories range. Since October 2021, we have been offering a steadily growing number of railway wheels for our models. We produce these ourselves in Austria/Germany as a team using an SLA printing process. In an elaborate production process, the best possible quality of the railway wheels is to be ensured for our customers


Rebranding as Stone Heap with new webshop for a better shopping experience for our customers


Licence agreement with Deutsche Bahn: From now on we are officially allowed to use the Deutsche Bahn logo and to realise prints and stickers for our models.


We are expanding our range of accessories to include the additional item of clamp brick drinks. Here, we would like to create an accessory offer especially for the clamp brick city builders, which is not often found on the market.


Expansion for our team: In order to meet the constantly growing demands, we need a team that works hand in hand. Thus, as of 09/2022, we can welcome 8 employees in our team


Sales launch of our first self-produced set of "Emma" from the Jim Knopf films. We can also rely on well-known licensing partners for this set, as we were able to obtain the licence from Warner Bros. and Ratpack, among others.


We celebrated our exhibition premiere at our first own stand at Schwabenstein 2022. With a stand of 20 x 6 metres, we were able to impressively showcase our range of over 250 models. In addition to our models, we also presented models from our partner company "derKlassiker" on 120 sqm. Our appearance was rounded off with the presentation of our "Emma" clamp building block and various slide shows which were shown to interested visitors at the stand.


Launch of our Discord Community Server: From now on, our Stone Heap community can contact us personally. Via our Discord server, we make it possible to give our customers' very own questions and suggestions a space. This way we want to make sure that we work close to the community and live together in our daily work. On the Stone Heap Discord Server, in addition to the personal exchange, livestreams also take place, which serve as a preview of new products available in the shop.
