Kitlinx Newsletter - June 5, 2021

Tomorrow is a "special day" for Historical fan-turned modelers! D-Day was the the start-of-the-end for terror and fascism in 1944. The picture below posted last week for "Memorial Day" is still a sobering reminder of the cost of Freedom.

BREAKING NEWS: A Success Story!

  • Kitlinx second attempt to include the "Retail Store inventory" over last weekend was a resounding SUCCESS! Thank you for your support and many of our valued customers captured many kits/accessories 'only-a-retail-stores-can-hide'... More to come!

  • Kitlinx2 update: Customers are NOT allowed to make a NEW account with the same email. It helps keep our system clean. Multiple accounts with same emails are a nightmare for customer support personnel who want to search for a specific order. So if you cannot access your account, please use the automated system "I forgot my password" or "retrieve my username" to be sent to your email.

  • Kitty Hawk & Panda Models has issue a statement saying that the company is closing when the inventory is spent. Kitlinx has 18 SKUs of these two lines in stock, and we are restocking 40 more SKUs in the next 7 days. Please note that the MSRP was adjusted by about 20% DOWN! So it's a good time to stock up these kits before they disappear!

  • Kitlinx has now over 300 Bandai products IN STOCK! (deep inventory) It will increase to 400 shortly. Kitlinx is updating pictures and descriptions every day! These kits are not easy to come-by, and restocks from Japan are not assured. Kitlinx is supporting Bandai as an introduction to younger generations into tour fun hobby.

Built by Bob Jackson, Perrysburg Ohio. Hans Urich Rudels Kanonvogel Stuka tank destroyer (Hasegawa 1/32 Ju.87G). Winter camo on the Russian front. Completely detailed and weathered in and out. My rendition of what his winter camo Stuka looked like based on only one pic of the front half of the actual plane he flew

Your Feedback:

It's just so great that an outfit like Kitlinx exists and is so fantastic as well.  Nicely done and don't ever go away!

What a great experience for us model builders. I have been purchasing kits from Kitlinx and Loic for many years. I have to say that Kitlinx has been able to get model kits that I have been searching for a long time. Kitlinx has access to model companies outside the United States, that others do not. Therefore I have been able to kits from model companies that I had ever heard of before. Thank you Kitlinx for such a great opportunity to get models that I've always wanted

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 "*"
