Your feedback:

Great service and prices.  I appreciate the huge selection and that you know what they have in stock vs. what they can get for you.  They have kept me busy building during the lockdown

Have been using your company for my hobby needs off and on for a number of years now, both in it's previous incarnation as well as Kitlinx currently.

And I must say that, with the exception of one incident involving a paint pot, I have yet to be disappointed. I ordered a particular aircraft model from Kitlinx this past December, as a gift. Although not physically in stock, you were the only one of the major online hobby retailers that had the kit available for purchase at all, albeit sourced from Europe. Two weeks, per the fine print, and a bit of patience, and voila!! Kit arrived as estimated and in plenty of time for Christmas. So long as you understand the Kitlinx business model, nicely spelled out on their website, you will most certainly have a satisfactory experience. Kudos, and keep up the splendid work

CRASH WEEK!

What a messy week! 

  • On Monday, our server crashed. The entire server had to be rebuilt, and it took 8 hours before we were back ONLINE (FYI, Kitlinx does not even know where this server is physically located)
  • On Wednesday, our homepage script to list all NEW releases crashed... that was repaired overnight
  • On Thursday, the script to access accounts crashed... Now we are getting "mad"... but our ISP said that they were all related to the Monday crash

This is the response from the programming Company: "Basically, an update did not go well. Recovery would have been quicker, but it was the worst time to find out that the web server software was not properly backing up. In a nutshell, I needed to reinstall the web server software from scratch and add all the addresses back to it"

You may not see the back of this operation, but be aware that Kitlinx has started its MAJOR UPGRADE (called Kitlinx II) for better service/faster updates by moving its operation TO THE CLOUD! That means a lot to Kitlinx employees (customer support could work from home to answer questions/take orders/make changes, packers work without paperwork, a lot like a McDonald employee filling your order from a 'over-hang computer scree), and to YOU the customer (connections with supplier's servers, quick and accurate updates, automated order status, and customer's online ability to change an order before it's pulled/packed)

 

Current update on KITLINX II: Currently connecting the table of Supplier's SKU to the Customer's Orders and the product database - in order to create semi-automated Supplier's orders. This supplier's SKU table currently contains almost 200,000 entries. That means that Kitlinx has an average of 2.3 supplier's connections for each SKUs

Another feature available in Kitlinx II that we have NOT turned on yet is: pricing comparison. Kitlinx is hiding some items because the price is too high. But sometimes, these items are not available anywhere else! So we will let the customer decide. Also, pricing comparison will insure that the "best" price is offered by ordering from the most aggressive suppliers

 

COVID-19 UPDATE:

The total 'official tally of infected people in the State of Utah' is 1,093 (x3.6 from last week - NOT slowing down - 7 deaths). Utah is still "stay-at-home" mandate, but not on lock-down. We have a reduced crew, and Loic's wife is taking the place of packers to limit the liability. We are open and "busier- than- ever"

  • Our Mail Order business has TREMENDOUSLY picked up in the last 2 weeks. Please be patient as additional challenges are met, but we are processing orders regularly. Please use your "Order Status" to save Kitlinx employee's time!
  • FedEx and USPS are NOT affected by States "Lock-Down". Shipments are still moving in and out uninterrupted - hiccup with International Air Shipments 
  • "Local Pickup" are temporarily discontinued until further notice. We want to do our parts in "physical distancing" 
  • If you are on "Lock Down", please remember that it might be a golden opportunity to finish your modeling projects or starting fun ones... and share your hobby-skills with those pesky kids stuck with you in the house!

  • Kitlinx is a "broker" of models, books and accessories (KIT↔LINKS). It means we have ~15,000 in stock items, especially the HOTTEST products. But we source ~75,000 additional products, in the US and abroad - remember that's why Loic came back to the business. NO ONE in our industry offers a similar system at this operational scale.

  • Look at the STATUS on each item. When it says "Special Order in Europe, Ships in less than 2 weeks"... we mean it! Actually, it's an estimate (Kitlinx does not control the Postal Service or Customs). Our international order made on Monday arrived Friday!! That's the best we've seen... Faster than UPS/FedEx Ground from the East Coast to Utah!

  • Look at your ORDER STATUS - Kitlinx offers an update on items we source. There is an "expected date" on each sourced item (that's when Kitlinx receives the product). 

  • Watch for MULTIPLE items. Some customers order x10 of one product. Even distributors might not have those quantities. Orders are held, if NOT COMPLETE.

  • NO "expected date" on ONE of your ordered product? It will HOLD your order, so please "MAKE A DECISION"... that probably means the supplier sold out (between updates - that's why our NEW system coming later this year will automate this process). Suppliers restock often, but Kitlinx does not control their business.

Your feedback:

Very pleased. I remember the Douglas Models Shop on 5th St in SLC. Went into the service and came home and found your shop on 33rd South and 20th East. Then shopped at your last shop out around 77th South. Disappointed when I went out in 2015 and found it closed. Glad you are back in business and pleased with the quick turn around on my order as well as your selection

You wanted to hear from Xtracolor users like myself. I have used Xtracolor paints exclusively since 1995. Mostly on aircraft models. I am absolutely a fan and refuse to use anything else. The finishes on my planes is glass smooth and decal ready. I have never had a silvered decal on an finished aircraft. I use Model Master Airbrush Thinner to cut it and it blends perfectly. Here are a few photos (Note: posting them in the review page). The cabinet drawers each have six tins but I have  more in reserve. Please continue to carry this Xtracolor line as the best enamel money can buy

Your feedback:

I'm very pleased with the products. The saw blades work well in reapplying the panel lines much better than a scribing tool. I new the paints are good cause I use mostly tamiya paint for my armor models. For my ww2 air craft I was using model master till they discontinued all there paint. Was disappointed I liked model master paints. But the AK real colors were a life saver for me. Thank you for having an excellent list of products. As of now I'll be a loyal customer

COVID-19 UPDATE:

I guess we HAVE to talk about Coronavirus since it is disrupting our lives... First, the total 'official tally of infected people in the State of Utah' is 78. Since some US States (California and New York)

 have started to be on "lock-down" and it could happen to the State of Utah without prior notification, let talk about how this is affecting our BUSINESS:

  • FedEx and USPS are NOT affected by States "Lock-Down". Shipments are still moving in and out uninterrupted
  • "Local Pickup" are temporarily discontinued until further notice. We want to do our parts in "physical distancing" - but we still Love our Utahn customers. No worries, we will ship to you for FREE (current orders only)
  • If you are on "Lock Down", please remember that it might be a golden opportunity to finish your modeling projects or starting fun ones... and share your hobby-skills with those pesky kids stuck with you in the house!

POLICY UPDATES

We have updated our policy page

  • Parts missing from Kits/Accessories: Kitlinx do NOT open kits or accessories. Manufacturers are responsible for the accuracy of their packaging. Kitlinx will first refer the customer to the Manufacturer if a part is missing. If the Manufacturer do not respond to the mistake, Kitlinx will gladly procure the part(s) to the customer if still available. Please be patient during this process.
  • Mistakes: Kitlinx has strict procedures to check/double check products before it ships to customers. But as any operations shipping 1,000s of products, some mistakes could occur. Please contact Kitlinx about any mistake. Most often, we will ask you to ship the product back IF YOU RESIDE IN THE US. Foreign customers may be asked to combine an order with the re-shipment of a corrected piece to limit the shipping liability.
  • Shipping Corrections: Kitlinx uses an automated software to calculate shipping costs. It is based on "calculated weight" depending if the product is a kit, accessory, decals, book. Sometimes, this calculated shipping is under-charged (especially on large & light kits entering the "dimensional weight" criteria) or over-charged if the weight is wrong. Kitlinx NOTIFIES customers on the first couple orders when a credit is given. After a few transactions, Kitlinx still provides the shipping credit, but do NOT inform the customer. Please make sure to USE YOUR CREDITS at the payment step during check-out (just check the box if a credit appears!)

 

COVID-19 UPDATE:

We are all tired to hear about the Coronavirus... but we got a few concerned emails, so let's address it: Utah has only 5 recorded cases in a population of 3 millions! Your packages are SAFE. It seems like our incoming European packages are NOT affected by the US restrictions because it transits thru the UK. So really.... stay safe, but models from Kitlinx will KEEP YOU BUSY in your home! Don't buy more toilet paper... buy models from Kitlinx!!

Just picked up your parcel this morning so from your order date till now is  just 24 days which is not bad for a parcel from the USA. Parcel arrived intact and the contents were packed nicely and all in pristine condition. Was really pleased with what you did on the parcel label and I didn't have to pay a single cent on Import Duty so  'you' earn many credits from me for that excellent service.  Also pleased to see the refund of $20 dollar (re-shipping charges) and will hopefully claim that in the not too distant future.  Wish I could order more often but being an 'old age pensioner' I'm sorry to say that's a luxury I don't have anymore. Many thanks once again, its a pleasure dealing with you

Your feedback:

It's always a pleasure to order from Kitlinx. I can get products from hundreds of suppliers from one place at a good price. On top of that, my order will be correct and on time. You can't ask for better than that. Thanks Loic.

Thank you all, Your company is the greatest. What a pleasant surprise this afternoon two packages arrived  on my carport, one the Airfix P-51 which I expected . to arrive Monday 12/23. The BIG surprise was the HK Model B-17 which I did not expect well after Christmas. But there it was, I could not believe it! Thanks again,your the best. Happy Holidays to you and I will be doing a good amount of business with you in the new year

Pardon our Dust: 

It was a "messy week". Our ISP changed our picture server, and you might have noticed that many pictures did not export properly around Monday/Tuesday

Then it was our FTP program that did not work with the new server to upload the NEW images... And then Friday, the website went KAPUT for an hour!! Arrrgh!

Thank you for your patience

Fraud: 

Kitlinx has experienced some fraud from Mexico recently. We have found out thru the years that Plastic Modelers are VERY honest and trustworthy.  However, we cannot afford, in a tight competitive world, to lose products/shipping costs due to fraudulent activities. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: All orders from Mexico will have to pay using Paypal -  or Money Orders in US$ funds [it is now programmed in the check-out]. Paypal has a very effective way to verify credentials of the buyers or the seller. Kitlinx reserves the right to hold orders if the country of destination is considered a "high fraud risk". We usually contact the parties privately unless we see a pattern that requires policy changes.

Check your order status!  

  • Kitlinx is a "broker" of models, books and accessories (KIT↔LINKS). It means we have ~16,000 in stock items, especially the HOTTEST products. But we source ~70,000 additional products, in the US and abroad - remember that's why Loic came back to the business. NO ONE in our industry offers a similar system at this operational scale.

  • Look at the STATUS on each item. When it says "Special Order in Europe, Ships in less than 2 weeks"... we mean it! Actually, it's an estimate (Kitlinx does not control the Postal Service or Customs). Our international order made on Monday arrived Friday!! That's the best we've seen... Faster than UPS/FedEx Ground from the East Coast!

  • Look at your ORDER STATUS - Kitlinx offers an update on items we source. There is an "expected date" on each sourced item (that's when Kitlinx receives the product). 

  • Watch for MULTIPLE items. Some customers order x10 of one product. Even distributors might not have those quantities. Orders are held, if NOT COMPLETE.

  • NO "expected date" on ONE of your ordered product? It will HOLD your order, so please "MAKE A DECISION"... that probably means the supplier sold out (between updates - that's why our NEW system coming later this year will automate this process). Suppliers restock often, but Kitlinx does not control their business. After 30-days, if Kitlinx receives no communication from customer, the missing item will be refunded/credited and your remaining order will ship automatically.

Rick from Indiana just earned $5 credit! 

Great selection of armor photo-etch from Poland (Aber, Part).  Also Nuts And Bolts and Panzer Tracts series books, all at very reasonable prices. Everything was in stock as shown on the website. Shipping cost was relatively cheap compared to other leading online hobby shop. The order was promptly fulfilled and was at my door in a few days in excellent condition. 

Very satisfied !
