Kitlinx Newsletter - August 12, 2022

 

Tips from Kitlinx

  • Postage and Shipping Companies
  1. USPS Priority Mail is FAST, it's about 2-3 days to the East Coast from Utah. UPS can take up to 4-5 days to the East Coast. It's usually cost effective to use UPS over 3lbs.
  2. USPS 1st Class Mail is NOT SLOW!. It's about an extra day than Priority Mail. The package has to be below 1lb.
  3. The threshold between 1st Class International and Priority International is 4lbs.
  4. There is a CHECKBOX during the shipping step of checkout which says: "Click here to use the cheapest carrier/rate if weight allows - credit the difference". We encourage our customers to check that box. Sometimes, weights are not accurate or the weight is exactly 1lbs which is the threshold for Priority Mail/UPS. But Kitlinx can still ship at 15.9oz via 1st Class and save YOU a lot!
  5. Kitlinx noticed that some customers chose faster rates of shipping, while some items in their orders are sourced in Europe! It's your money and your choice, but remember that the difference between 1st class and Priority/UPS is about $5-$7 and only saves you a day or two.
  6. Dimensional Weight: Some kits (like the Border Model 1/32 Lancaster or MRC 1/200 IJN Yamato) are so large that USPS/UPS do not use the actual weight of the package, but use a formula to compensate for its large dimension. For example, a 15lbs kit might be rated at 25lbs for shipping purposes.
  • Contacting Kitlinx
  1. Kitlinx wants to hear from our valued customers. The system is FULLY automated and very smart to simultaneously manage thousands of orders and to allow items to be sourced all over the world and arrive at your doorstep (23k items in stock, 40k sourced in the US within a week, 39k sourced in Europe within two weeks*, 5,700 out stock items for reference but expected to be re-issued and 1,051 pre-orders expected soon) [* disclaimer: European shipping is sometimes subject to shipping or customs delays]
  2. Kitlinx monitors the BEST SELLERS and is committed to keep them IN STOCK for a period of 60-days after release.
  3. The system does not ALWAYS work... an item might be suddenly "out of stock" at a supplier AFTER the customer orders it and before Kitlinx could grab it. The database could also show an item in our warehouse that our employees cannot find because it was misplaced. Since all orders ship COMPLETE**, please check your order status regularly. New features will soon appear to allow more flexibility in the system [** disclaimer: Complete orders do not include pre-orders which ship when released]
  4. You can CALL our customer support (CS) @ 801-597-9095 or EMAIL CS. We have full time reps ready to help you 9am-5pm MST, excluding weekends and Federal holidays.
  5. Loic runs the mail order operation. His email is loic@kitlinx.com. Be cautious contacting "the boss" directly. He is much more busy than CS and stretched between many tasks. Contacting CS should be used FIRST for the fastest response. If CS cannot resolve your issue, they will forward it to Loic
  6. Customer Support operates remotely, but comes to the warehouse once-a-week to resolve boxes requiring shipping, returns, and discuss customer issues with Loic.

  • What a week! Look below at the OVERFLOW of NEW releases. It's great to see the hobby industry doing so well
  • European Orders: One WAY- OVERDUE Europe order is coming Monday Aug.8th, and TWO more are coming mid- week as well. Sorry for these irregular flow of orders, it's often beyond our control (US customs, shipping delays, supplier busy schedule). Please be patient, they ALWAYS come thru!
  • Programming: We have NEW features comign, but the most notable one is "No Orders Left Behind". This feature allows customers to ADD to an existing order after canceling an item or just because you forgot an item. Also, the feature will automatically SEND AN EMAIL if an item is suddenly OUT OF STOCK AT ALL SUPPLIERS AFTER it was ordered. We want YOU, the customer, to manage your order with easy features to optimize your product reach and timing to receive them.

Kitlinx Newsletter - July 29, 2022

 

Breaking News

  • Added more IPMS goodies, Babibi and Phantom Phreaks. We are putting a SALE on these items this weekend... we got LOTS!
  • Inflation: It is "disheartening" to see so many price hikes from all suppliers. Kitlinx is watching very carefully these price increases (with automated software since we carry over 100k available products). Customers have "locked their prices" when they purchase an item, especially on pre-orders, and losing money on that transaction would be devastating for the business with slight margins... Tamiya new 1/48 P-38J was a good example of this gamble, with an announced MRSP of $81, but a release price of $86.

Loic Anthian on 7/25/2022 @ 5:29pm

Kitlinx Newsletter - July 25, 2022 - IPMS Nationals SPECIAL!!

 

2022 IPMS Nationals

Since Kitlinx did not publish a Newsletter last Friday, here's the update from the IPMS Nationals at Omaha Nebraska

  • Large restock of NEW Eduard Kits, now showing in stock. The ENTIRE LINE of OVERTREE: a cheap way to extend your collection!
  • Large restock of NEW Special Hobby Kits, now showing in stock
  • Large restock of Kinetic Kits, now showing in stock
  • Stocked the Phoenix Publication line, with some "out of print" SAM Publication. Still need to add the "Airmark" Air Profiles
  • Received another batch of Schiffer books, including P-38 references
  • Still to be added tomorrow: Phantom Phreaks, decals and resin accessories
  • Still to be added tomorrow: The "best" of UMM-USA tools!

THANK YOU for all the modelers who came to our booth and shook or hands, told us stories, and left a few $$ to make our 13-hour-drive worth it!! In our humble opinion, it was a VERY SUCCESSFUL SHOW. Thank you to the organizing group in Nebraska for a "perfect environment". They offered us a crew to quickly unload and load our trailer - and a smile on their faces!!

Please look at our Facebook page to see some pictures of the Modeling event, and some personnel pictures of manufacturers and Kitlinx personnel.

Loic Anthian on 7/15/2022 @ 6:57pm

Kitlinx Newsletter - July 15, 2022 - IPMS Nationals is next week!!

 

Breaking News

1/48 - Tamiya Models - TAM61123 - Lockheed P-38J Lightning Plastic Model Kit - We ran out of our inventory on that kit almost immediately. We noticed that ALL US suppliers ran out of this kit as well. But we secured another batch heading our way.  We should have a few extras... We are afraid that Tamiya USA is running out of them, so hopefully not!!

Please note that Tamiya has INCREASED prices across the board this past week! The bad news for Kitlinx is that pre-ordered Kits for this HOT RELEASE was at the $81 MSRP, but Kitlinx got their kits at the $86 MRSP. This is the "game we play" in this ridiculous 2022 inflation... No worries, Kitlinx customers got a GREAT DEAL on that new release!

Until this kit is kept IN STOCK at Kitlinx at all times, it will be on "Pre-Order" status

  • MRS Hobbyshop is doing a "Customer Appreciation Day" on July 16th (Saturday) at the South Salt Lake location (460 Lawndale Dr, SLC UT 84115). Model check-in will be 10am-12:30pm. Voting goes until 4:30pm and winners announced at 5pm. Come and share your hobby skills if you are a "local" or passing by our beautiful valley!
  • Kitlinx is waiting for another order from Lukgraph, including the AWESOME 1/32 Be.2c and Be.2e/f family! Should be all in stock in about 10 days! The Hansa Brandenburg Type NW should be released in 4-5 weeks. Have you heard of the Westland Wapiti? It is the replacement of the DH.9A in the RAF. Also coming soon on you modeling benches from this company. A kit announced 5-years ago, but finally coming to fruition! Kitlinx has ADJUSTED PRICING on the Lukgraph line since we don't have a "middle supplier" anymore. We hope our customers will enjoy the DIRECT IMPORTS!!
  • Kitlinx will make a IPMS Nationals Newsletter directly from Nebraska! We will let you know if any supplier is making some exciting announcements...

2022 IPMS Nationals

  • IPMS Nationals in Omaha Nebraska is just 5 days away!! Don't miss Kitlinx tables and an opportunity to say "Hi" to the "infamous" Maddog Merv!
  • Kitlinx will bring a small crew, but we will need helpers to SETUP on Wednesday morning
  • Kitlinx would like to hire a few "Temporary Workers" during the show. Hours are flexible, payment can be cash or "in kits", atmosphere is only FUN! Please send an email to loic@kitlinx.com

Your Feedback:  

Great selection of products and mail order service. Sometimes I've received my orders earlier than expected. Can't complain about that!

Harry from Lyndhurst, Ohio just earned $5 credit!

Everything got here just as you said it would. I know that there are delays with post and couriers but there were no surprises with delivery! It’s great that you had the kit I was looking for, I tried everywhere, even the manufacturer had none left...... more orders to follow!

Thanks again for the great service!

Bruno from Stouffville, Ontario just earned $5 credit!

My recent order arrived in perfect condition and very quickly. Given the mess that COVID is creating with shipping between the US and Australia I was really pleased and surprised that the kit arrived here in such a short time

Gary from Glen Waverley, Australia just earned $5 credit!

Breaking News

  • Kitlinx is connecting with a NEW Distributor who carries some VERY INTERESTING line: We updated Bandai, Fujimi, Very Fire, AK Interactive, MIG Productions, Aoshima, Hasegawa. We added 1,500 items this week alone, but only 500 pictures... Still about 10,000 items to enter... Pictures will be fully entered, but it's a slower and painful process. 
  • Heavy Hobby is a line from Voyager in Korea, mostly 3D printed items, gorgeous quality!
  • Please look at the TWO HOTTEST ICM offerings of the 1/35 CH-54A Tarhe. The picture for ICM53054 was wrong. The BLU-82/B 'Daisy Cutter' bomb is included only with ICM53055. Also, Kitlinx overcharged the pre-orders on these kits and costs will be adjusted. We want to confirm that ICM is doing well, and fulfilling orders. Cheers to Ukraine and their fighting spirit!
  • European Orders: Again, one of our orders from Europe was delayed... but it showed up TODAY, along with the NEXT order on the same day! Our shipping day is now very busy! Welcome to a LOT of new and exciting items, including ICM72140 MiG-29 'Ghost of Kiev'!

Rob Humphrey, from West Jordan, Utah, is showing his 1/72 Italeri Sukhoi Su-34/32. His comments below:

"I finished up my 1/72 scale SU-34 for the Salt Lake IPMS meeting contest. Did pretty good ! It went together well and had a hard time deciding on what paint scheme to use. I started with one with a different "greenish-blue" and switched back to one I saw earlier. I used kit decals, except replaced the kit Borg numbers with my decal stash of Borg numbers to reflect a SU-34 I saw in an article. A very good kit and would recommend it"

Your Feedback:  

"Great service never have had a problem with any of my orders!"

Richard from Pembine, Wisconsin just earned $5 credit!

"Outstanding service (plus the product was available -- not a given these days!) for a great price yet again! Thanks!!"

Jeff from New York, NY just earned $5 credit!

"Thank you for inquiring.   I received my recent order.   I was pleased and all of the merchandise arrived and undamaged. I am impressed with your large inventory of products.   As a collector I appreciate your inclusion of product lines from east Europe. If there are any suggestions for improvement it would be in delivery time of merchandise.   I placed two separate orders at the same time as my order from Kitlinx.   Your competitors get merchandise to my door in half the time.   This was my experience the first time I ordered from Kitlinx.   Fortunately I'm not in a hurry.   But if I need something in a hurry, Kitlinx might not be my first choice.   In Reno Nevada we lost all three of our hobby stores.   I and fellow IPMS club members have to order everything online now.   Time is of the essence especially with paints/glues/tape.   I'm also unhappy about Testors discontinuing much of their enamel paint line.   But that's another story.  I will order from Kitlinx again.   I collect rare subjects and enjoy upgrading my kits with accessories.   Thank you for the large inventory from which to choose"

David from Sparks, Nevada just earned $5 credit!

 

NOTE FROM LOIC: This comment from David is VALID. But you can also use Kitlinx as a "speedy supplier" IF YOU ORDER ALL ITEMS IN STOCK! Kitlinx has 24,000 items in stock, and most of the hottest kits are kept in stock at all times. Just be cautious about items "in Europe". Just "ONE" item from Europe in your large order will delay your entire order until this "ONE" item is sourced. No-one in the US has these European items! (33,000 of them, and it will increase to 43,000 in the next few weeks...)

  • ScaleMates: Now connecting to about 60,000 products for reviews, price comparison & accessories!

  • BIG BOY release: Breaking News! Gallery 1/200 Yamato has just been released in the US. This kit will land next week... Don't delay as we expect this kit to be a collectible, and also ask your wife for a "house extension"... NOTE: when you order this kit, you will notice the 3% 'out of stock' discount COMBINED with the over $300 order discount, which will total $42 discount (6%)... then it's FREE shipping if you live in the 'contiguous US'.
