Your feedback: This week, we are illustrating a NEGATIVE COMMENT, and being upfront about Kitlinx process

"Disappointed in not even having order shipped yet and/or your not having in stock or not being able to acquire ordered items in a timely fashion"

James from NY

Kitlinx wants its VALUED customers to understand how it works - first, it's all explained in the link HOW IT WORKS

  • you ordered two products with a "Status" of "Special Order in Europe, Ships in less than 2 weeks"

  • Your order date was on 4/02, and it is 4/12 today. We actually received the 4/02European Order on 4/08. Pretty impressive!

  • You were smart to order BEFORE the Every-Monday-11am European order. It's the best timing we can offer (because of Kitlinx growth, we should be able to now make TWO orders per week!)

  • The two items you ordered were "glues", and it was denied for "Air Shipment" by the supplier (that's why XtraColors take so long to restock!)

  • Because a couple cheap products in your order were NOT procured, it HELD your order, which we now can ship after canceling/refunding these two items

  • Kitlinx changed the FedEx request to USPS Priority. It was similarly priced, but it will take 2 days to the East Coast! (rather than 5 via FedEx/UPS)

Kitlinx wanted to show our customers that it is VERY USEFUL to look at your ORDER STATUS. If ONE product is not captured by our automated system, it will HOLD your order

Please HELP US by looking at your order status, then sending us emails or calling 801-815-0677, to MOVE YOUR ORDERS FASTER!!

Kitlinx wants to ship your orders FASTER!

I was very happy with the transaction.  Easy to order.  Very well packaged. No damage to anything when opened. One small hitch with one kit, but I don't attribute that to Kitlinx, but an error by the manufacturer. Will be ordering from again in the future. Glad to see you're back in the business

NEW ARRIVAL link - Top of Left Column Searches

We have added a NEW link on the left-column-searches. It's NEW ARRIVAL. It shows the New Arrivals, with a small thumb-picture and a 'quick add' button if you don't want the hassle to go to the Item Page. It's a great overview of the MASSIVE new releases flowing to the market... We will work further to add sub-searches, like by "scale" and by "Categories"

Lines Updated 

  • Hasegawa - Prices have DROPPED significantly! (that's almost 600 available products!)

 

NEW Line: ERRATA! We screwed up the pricing on this line. Now it's corrected

If you see lines that need update, please send me an email loic@kitlinx.com 

 

CALCULATED SHIPPING OVER 5lbs - Kitlinx tried a new process to encourage LARGE orders. Shipping costs were NOT calculated at check-out when your package was over 5lbs, due to some potential weight miscalculation of multiple products. The accurate weight would give the customer an exact pricing. 

The problem with this process is the communication with the customers to claim the shipping when the order is ready to leave. It is a manual process, and "as most manual processes", it is prone to email miscommunication and internal follow up. We recently shipped MANY packages that were waiting 'shipping payments' while these payments were already made via Paypal. It is easily forgotten in 100s of transactions daily!

This feature is STILL available for packages over 5lbs - please respond to the emails Kitlinx sends.

Kitlinx now offers the calculated shipping pricing over 5lbs-orders as well, especially since many customers are in neighboring States, and shipping to these States is very affordable - regardless the weight. Please note that FedEx comes with a 20% discount which is now in competition with USPS, especially for States cross-the-country

Thanks Guys for the shipping delay announcement, no worries here, and I do appreciate your professional courtesy of keeping your patrons informed. Hang in there, this weather too shall pass. Be safe, stay warm, and take care of your loved ones.

Quality service is always worth the wait.

NOTE from Loic: I was concerned that the large supplier order would be stuck, floating to oblivion, or returned to sender as UPS often does. But sure enough, it arrived the following day! Yay!

 

Snapshot at History!

This week, a local customer bought a Special Hobby kit: SHY48189 Bucker Bu.181 "Panzerjagdstaffeln". As we pulled this kit out of our shelving, I noticed the Panzerfausts on the wings... and I thought it was weird for such a slow un-armored trainer to shoot a very inaccurate weapon out of its wing! Here is the link of these events... fascinating!

  • HGW Aircraft Accessories (600 products!) - This line is one of our most popular line of accessories we source oversea, with many WW I details for the amazing Wingnut Wings (which we keep in stock as well!)

 

NEW Line: It's a local line. Next week we will see the Cockpit and Afterburners of the F/A-18E. Would love to see that kit coming in the US... Please NEW TEAM of Revell!

We 'took a day-off' this week to finish a project for the sister company Field of Armor Tanks (1/6 scale armor). This big-bad-boy was finally finished! It includes accessories from the 6th Scale Icons line. This tank is from the Kampf-Gruppe Peiper, Ardennes in December 1944. Another 1/6th brother-Panther with M.A.N 'Disc Camouflage' is being built, along a Pz.IV Ausf.J and a Flak 36

Very thankful that Kitlinx is handling the Windsock Datafile series of books.  The prices are spot on and not obnoxiously inflated like those selling the series elsewhere online.  Shipping is competitively priced and quite quick in my view being in PA and with Kitlinx based in Utah.  The best thing is the packaging, and to me that's a big deal.  In the case of my recent order, it was received with a substantial corner bump.  I thought for sure the book would be damaged, but good packaging and a little luck prevailed and all was in superior shape once the package was opened.  Kitlinx is definitely my number one kit and book resource online.  Thanks again

Your feedback:

Recently I preordered a model for about thirty dollars more than the kit retailed for when it finally arrived at Kitlinx . I was a bit concerned that I might not receive the now discounted price difference. Well, as it turned out, there was no need to worry. For when I placed my next order there was a credit adjustment already in place for the correct difference to go towards my next order. This is just another example of what I have come to expect, and why I will continue to do business with Kitlinx. Did I mention that the majority of time my packages come a day earlier than the expected arrival date?!

Ron from Massachusetts

 

'Tricks of the Week' to best use Kitlinx

  • Remember that you get an extra 5% discount if NOT in stock (showing at check out)! (that's why it's a good deal on Pre-Orders... since products are not in stock yet!)

  • If you order over $300, Kitlinx adds a "Freight Allowance" of 3%, added to the 5% if NOT in stock. That means, Trumpeter 1/200 USS Yortktown just released this week is $314.95 minus 5% and 3%, or around $289

  • But don't delay, as it's in stock next Thursday-Friday! and you will lose the 5%

  • Monday is when we order to Foreign suppliers (US orders are throughout the week). If you place you order on Tuesday for 'European goods', then it will wait 6 days before being processed then it takes another week to be sourced! For best processing time in a "kit not in stock, sourced in Europe", just order over the weekend or BEFORE Monday 11AM MST [Status: Less then 2 weeks for Europe is the worse case scenario! - if you order Monday morning, Kitlinx often gets it next Monday...]

  • Some lines are just GREAT DEALS at Kitlinx: 

  1. AFV Club - pricing is about 30-40% less than most US suppliers

  2. Friul Tracks - pricing is about 20% less than most US suppliers - NEW THIS WEEK!

  3. Airfix - Kitlinx just learned that the 1/48 Blenheim Mk.IF was expected by our first US distributor to get it.  Kitlinx has been selling this kit for 3 months! [Nov.25, 2018] It is actually our second best seller (in our short history) after Revell 1/32 P-51D. YES, Airfix is one of the many lines we capture WAY BEFORE the US Market!

If you see lines that need update, please send me an email loic@kitlinx.com 

SHIPPING UPDATE! Kitlinx has negotiated NEW RATES with FedEx. That's why we dropped UPS and we are now shipping FedEx. It means that FedEx rates are now 20% LOWER on the website. Please observe the new low prices when you check-out! (mostly interesting over 3 lbs)

 

DEAL of the Weekend! Kitlinx is offered some SPECIAL PRICES on a number of kits, in limited quantities, by a supplier outside our regular distributors. Use "WeekendMarch2019" keyword (with any other keyword, scale, armor, etc.) and see if you like the prices on some kits or accessories. The "Special Prices" will be valid until Monday March 3rd, 12PM MST - ONE TIME DEAL! Mostly Trumpeter, Academy, - these kits will be IN STOCK by next Friday!

I have now received my 3rd order from your company.  Everything arrived on time, well packed.  I appreciated the great service.  You website has the stock information on the  products I order.  I know when they will ship when I order.  Every time they have shipped on time and received in excellent condition.  Also I appreciate the pricing structure and and the occasional sales, which I have taken advantage of.  Also great selection and availability of product.  I will continue to order from you guys!

Received my order promptly. Price was reasonable, and you had it in stock. This was my first time ordering from you, but it will not be the last. Thank you

It's NOT often that we put a kit "out of stock" in our premium spot, but this 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ki-45 Toryu was sold out in a few days! We opened the box and we realized WHY! clear parts and normal parts are doubled to show the interior detail of this model. It is an amazing feat of modeling... We have MORE coming next week, now with the F-4 Phantom family. This line are ONLY offered when in stock

NOTE: Revell of Germany 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet is released in Europe! We cannot bring it via Airmail as this kit is TOO LARGE and it would be cost prohibitive. We will wait until the sea shipment will arrive in the US! The GOOD NEWS? Revell of Germany is well and alive...
