Kitlinx Newsletter - December 11, 2020
Lots of "action" is happening in the background
Kitlinx has been simultaneously testing our local-computer system and comparing it to the "cloud" system
We are closing-in with the order processing on "the Cloud"
As soon as this system will be operational next week, we are moving MANY of our operation to "the Cloud"...
The first benefits to our customers will be: "Immediate awareness when your order is on the Packing Table", "Ability to change orders online" [when NOT on packing table], "One-week Email warning, when an item cannot be sourced immediately" [Kitlinx & suppliers are out]
We shipped an order today, which was received 35 minutes earlier... Yes, Kitlinx2 is starting to take form!
More accuracy on expected "Supplier Orders". For example, the European order expected today is actually in NY. It means that it will be in SLC tomorrow, and Kitlinx will process it/ship your orders on Monday! The other European order from this Monday has shipped, and should be in by next Thursday, a day early!
Many customer's "Special Friends" have contacted Kitlinx to receive GIFT CERTIFICATES for their significant-other's best-Ecommerce Hobbyshop. Your requests have been granted! Kitlinx now offer THREE types of Gift Certificates to "make peace at home"... Gift certificates are validated via the Order# indicated on the certificate. They can only be used ONCE.
$25 Gift Certificate
$50 Gift Certificate
$100 Gift Certificate
We have not found a way to ship them for FREE yet. Maybe a project for next year when Kitlinx2 will be fully operational! The lucky recipients can claim the shipping fee back as credit as well (for US Continental US only)

I am very happy with the service and quantity of products that Kitlinks have. I have been ordering the products that I will need for my 2 year long diorama build. The diversity of the products helps me make my project more attractive and meaningful to me. Thanks Kitlinks for having the wide variety of options available for the consumer.
Keep up the hard work that you do

I was very satisfied with the delivery and speed of the package. Your service compares very favorably to the very best retailers I've dealt with.
The two kits are as nice as I expected. (actually bought the AMMO King Tiger before in fact) The Sherman is the first Tasca /Ausuka kit I bought. It won't be the last

Enterprise 'barely' missed a doomed fate on the "day of infamy", and will be a HUGE help in crucial battles in the Pacific. Below is an excerpt of her involvement, often forgotten, on Dec.7th (Credit: Wikipedia):
"Enterprise launched eighteen of her SBDs - the CAG's aircraft, 13 aircraft from Scouting Squadron Six (VS-6) and four aircraft from Bombing Squadron Six (VB-6) - at dawn on 7 December to scout an arc extending from the northeast to southeast of the ship, and to land at Ford Island at Pearl Harbor after completing their search routes. As these aircraft arrived in pairs over Pearl Harbor, they were caught between attacking Japanese aircraft and defensive anti-aircraft fire from the ships and shore installations below. Seven SBDs were shot down, either from enemy action or friendly fire, with the loss of eight airmen killed and two wounded.
Enterprise received radio messages from Pearl Harbor reporting that the base was under attack, and she was later directed to launch an airstrike based on an inaccurate report of a Japanese carrier southwest of her location. The strike was launched around 17:00, consisting of six Grumman F4F Wildcat fighters of Fighting Squadron Six (VF-6), 18 Douglas TBD Devastator torpedo bombers of Torpedo Squadron Six (VT-6), and six SBDs of VB-6.
Unable to locate any targets, the torpedo and dive bombers returned to Enterprise, but the six fighters were directed to divert to Hickam Field on Oahu. Although word of the planes' expected arrival had been broadcast to all ships and anti-aircraft units in the area, the appearance of the Wildcats in the night sky over Oahu triggered panic firing, which shot down three of them, killing their pilots, while a fourth aircraft ran out of fuel, forcing the pilot to bail out"

Let me add some "tricks" to the POWERFUL search engine of Kitlinx. It's KEY to search ~ 80,000 available products
1. Use the top box search on Homepage
2. Use several keywords separated by spaces to zero-in your search "1/48 spitfire aircraft_model" (59 kits)
3. Use the underscore "_", like armor_models or Tamiya_ or aircraft_accessor "1/48 spitfire aircraft_access" (456 accessories)
4. Use keyword "instock" to JUST search for in-stock items
5. If you are searching for SALE items, use the keyword "~special~"
6. Don't forget the Manufacturer's link on TOP of each Product-Page. It quickly shows ALL available product from the same manufacturer
7. DO NOT use the asterisk "*"
