Kitlinx Newsletter - March 27, 2020
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
Daris from Arkansas just earned $5 credit!
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

The total 'official tally of infected people in the State of Utah' is 298 (x3.8 from last week - one death). 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"
- 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"
- 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!

Check your order status!
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. After 30-days, if Kitlinx receives no communication from customer, the missing item will be refunded/credited and your remaining order will ship automatically.
Phone Calls: 801-815-0677. Some of our valued customers want to talk to a LIVE agent. This phone is available because of Internet and Credit Card policies. Kitlinx would LOVE to talk to you, but we don't have the manpower for these voice calls. If you ABSOLUTELY NEED TO TALK to a Kitlinx Rep, please SEND A TEXT at this number, and we will return your call. Remember that the time we spend on the phone is not spent in processing shipments or updating the website - 90% of the inquiries are about "Order Status". You can see your "Order Status" online
Email is the BEST communication tool
