Kitlinx Newsletter - September 25, 2020



There is SO MUCH happening at Kitlinx, that we are adding this summary for the Newsletter

  • Kitlinx2: we are "stepping back" a bit. The proper workings of the website will require a step-by-step programming/audit of each upgrade. Our next goal is to make the Order Status and Supplier Order Updates to be working flawlessly, to limit Customer's concerns about their orders.

  • One issue with Kitlinx2 is with another programmer who designed a program to CONNECT TO MANY supplier's database. We need to 1) make sure connections are accurate on BOTH sides [SKUs] and 2) Pricing is accurate ACROSS-ALL suppliers, including European vendors. Pricing-on-an-even-field feature will allow OVER-PRICED items "in stock" at any vendor to still show on Kitlinx, IF all the "lower-priced" vendors are out of this specific product... It will be YOUR decision to buy the product or not. Right now, these items are discarded as over-priced.

  • Loic is back from Europe - with the large restock of XtraColors paints [209 paints in stock!]. Customs confiscated some large solvent bottles. but all of the small tins arrived.

  • Managing the website from Europe "from the Cloud" did work... mostly! NEW item updates were regularly uploaded, and orders were processed by our Utah-based personnel

Your Feedback:

What could I say the best paint and excellent service from kitlinx.  I'm just starting the Abteilung 502 products and they are so far more superior to my regular oils. Keep up with the good service

What is there to say excellent paint and thinner. Also excellent service items were well packed. Mr color and AK Real Colors excellent even better than what I was using

Dear Logic, (comment from Loïc - "auto-correct will do that!")


Please excuse me for screwing up your name. I should never use this thing without my glasses on!!

I appreciate the service you provide and your connection to “Scalemates”, very helpful to me.

Hope you all are well out there, Monday we are finally opening up in Massachusetts. About time (this message was in June 2020)

Quality Control:

We did receive REPLACEMENT TREES for the quality control of the NEW Meng 1/32 Fokker Dr.I. Please LOOK at your kit, and make sure that you don't have the missing part in that bag... maybe you can just re-attach it. For those who don't want to deal with it, contact loic@kitlinx.com
