Kitlinx Newsletter - May 14, 2021



  • Kitlinx is associating with a local retail store. The inventory of this large retail outlet is TEMPORARILY  showing in our database - it's a test! That's about 9,000 additional products! About 1,400 of these products are OUT OF PRODUCTION! And 5,600+ are showing as "out of stock" from Kitlinx major distribution outlets... that means that you have access to about 7,000 additional products - From NOW until Monday 10am MST 

  • Connecting TWO large database is not easy. Please be patient as Kitlinx will match Product-Codes AND Description as the above items are collected and shipped.

  • The above products sold will ship on Monday/Tuesday as COMPLETE ORDERS, unless orders include items sourced from our wider network of distributors (US or Europe). Kitlinx orders ship COMPLETE.

Use the keyword "retail_OOP" in your search, with any other keywords, for the items out of production


  • Narrative Books: some bookstores have joined into WIPING our inventory of books. Kitlinx has now posted its last 16 boxes of books, all with refreshed pictures. Don't delay! These books are flying off the shelves

Homepage Header: [new]

HINT: to view the CHANGES, just go to your browser history and click "Clear Recent History..."

Rob Humphrey from West Jordan, Utah built this Wingnut Wings 1/32 Halberstadt CL.II (out of production)

Rob is a long-time friend of GreatModels and Kitlinx - and will occasionally help our operation. You can find his build on the Kitlinx Facebook 'Build Page'. Rob also held the Guiness Book of Record for "Most built Aircraft Models". His tally was "verified" at 1,642... (they all have to be different... not collection of Bf.109s or Tiger Is)


We are ASKING customers to send us your model pictures to be posted on our HOMEPAGE, or post the pictures on Kitlinx Facebook Build-Page where we could capture them! 

$10 store credit will be issued when your picture is posted on the Kitlinx Homepage


  • Picture will be 1000x250 pixels

  • Your Name/City/State will be posted to give credit-to-whom-it-belongs

Your Feedback:

You want a review of what I think of kitlinx You are by far the best company for hobby folks like myself that I have ever bought from. Excellent service. Bought from you numerous times never once an issue. Thanks

Frank, from Maine just earned $5 credit!

Huge selection, website easy to navigate, ordering process simple, prompt response, fast delivery, and order arrived well packed and undamaged. Does not get better than this


Albert from Georgia just earned $5 credit!


I'm always appreciative of Kitlinx' deep catalog. Some of the "other" mainstream mail order hobby outlets only seem to carry the flavor of the day; I feel like Kitlinx caters to the rest of us


Tracy from North Carolina just earned $5 credit!

[Feedback rules]: Kitlinx uses one recent comment, one semi-recent comment, and one in our huge backlog of compliments. Kitlinx tries to reward customers with an extended experience with Kitlinx as they have the most to say about our service. Kitlinx wants to be "transparent" about its service. Some comments might be concerns or constructive criticism.

Search Tips:

[Kitlinx is still working on its LEFT COLUMN searches. This work will be completed as soon as "Kitlinx-on-the-clouds" is working smoothly]

Let me add some "tricks" to the POWERFUL search engine of Kitlinx (the SEARCH BOX at the TOP of the website). 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 "*"
