  • Picture will be 1000x250 pixels

Your Feedback:

I would like to say it’s been a good experience. Everything on the actual KitLinx side is good. Site is good, ordering is good, price was acceptable for the subject matter. Issue I have is with the postal service. I’m pretty sure at this point they lost it, because they have no updates on it other than it is in the city somewhere right next to my city, and has been since five days ago. So, I don’t know what sort of condition it is in, nor if they even know the whereabouts of it

NOTE FROM LOIC: Yes, we have a few inquiries that USPS failed the "Priority Mail" expectations. But to be truthful, 99% of all packages make it FAST! It is 2-3 days from Utah to anywhere in the continental US. During the days of GreatModels, UPS/FedEx prices were affordable from the 2-3lbs range, but it took at least 5-days to cross the country! It is a GAME CHANGER for Kitlinx to use USPS Priority to ship your models even if you live on the East Coast or the Florida Key!


Do not worry, it is VERY RARE that USPS packages get lost. Below is what we suggest if you are worried about the whereabouts of your package via USPS:

  • Go to https://www.usps.com/ 

  • Enter the tracking# in the box "Search or Track Packages"

  • Go to "Text & email Updates"

  • Click on "All Below Updates" (choose Text or Email)

  • Put your phone# or Email Address, click on the box "I have read, understand, and agree to the Terms and Conditions"

It seems like the above action ATTRACTS THE ATTENTION OF USPS! (don't quote Loic on this!!) and you will receive, on your phone or email, information about any movement of this specific package!! Try it, it works!!



Lookup what you want and order it, it's that simple with Kitlinx ! Great prices and quality items !! Big plus is you don't have to fight traffic  !!! Kitlinx keeps you up to date on your order too !!!!  A pleasure to do business with !!!!!

Search Tips:

Let me add some "tricks" to the POWERFUL search engine of Kitlinx. Below are the KEYS to search ~ 80,000 available products (63% in US, 37% in Europe)

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 "*"
