Kitlinx Newsletter - July 3, 2021 - Happy 4th July Celebration!

NOTE: Monday is a Federal Holiday in the US. Resuming shipping on Tuesday



  • Kitlinx Operation Status: Kitlinx might have completed the move, but still we need to organize EFFICIENTLY our warehouse. Efficiency is critical for a mail order operation: "Every product has a place, every product in its place!". It is how our pullers quickly process orders. The paint racks are now being built to process the 1,000s of paints we carry. We have 100-linear-feet of bookshelves...

  • Field of Armor Tanks: The move of the "1/6th Scale Tank" operation has been completed, but it still needs to be organized properly

  • MRS Retail Store: Kitlinx has joined forces with MRS Hobby, a local hobby shop in Sandy, Utah. The second MRS Hobbystore will open on the front of the Kitlinx warehouse on August 1st. The benefit to our worldwide customers is the 'in stock' availability of paints when the database of these three operations will be joined shortly. Below is a "peek preview" of MRS Paint racks. Kitlinx 'in stock' inventory will shoot from 15k to 26k in the next 30-days...

Merv just retired from 42 yrs of school building maintenance this week, living in Salt Lake City, and being a friend of GreatModels and Kitlinx for years! You can meet him at the IPMS Nationals helping the Kitlinx crew -  $10 credit to Quinn!

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!

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

Your Feedback:

It is a pleasure to do business with the former Great Models Webstore folks. Just like old times. You had what I wanted and it was delivered no problem. I'll be back.


Michael, from Guam just earned $5 credit!

Order arrived right on time.  Carrying on the old Great Models tradition, great selection, value and service!


Mark from Texas just earned $5 credit!


You asked me to tell you of my experience. Well, here it is:

- I ordered kits.

- I paid for kits.

- You sent me an email acknowledging my order along with a UPS tracking number, which was nice. I used that tracking number a couple of times so I'd know when to expect the kits. It was preferable that SWMBO didn't see them you see.

- I received my kits exactly when UPS said I would.

As experiences go, I wouldn't put it up as high as having sex,  graduating from military training,  finding and marrying the greatest woman in the world, getting your driver's license, dating the girl in school with the largest boobs, etc, but as kit buying goes, it was just fine


Warren (uncensored) from Kansas just earned $10 credit! - Just for the good laugh!


[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 "*"
