Kitlinx Newsletter - July 16, 2021



  • IPMS Nationals 2021: The National Convention will happen between Aug. 18-21 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is about 6 hours-drive from Kitlinx warehouse. Kitlinx will be present as a vendor - please say Hi! We have ADDED A FEATURE during the 'shipping step' of the checkout "Pick-up at the IPMS Nats". If you wish to make an order now to be picked up at the convention, please chose this option. It will be FREE SHIPPING since we will carry the goods in our large trailer - if it doesn't work out, then you can pay shipping and Kitlinx will ship your order

  • Now that Kitlinx is settled in its new warehouse, it's time to start combining the inventory of the two retail outlets and mail order operation. Since our first connection attempt was a DISASTER, Kitlinx wants to slowly combine the first few important lines before it attacks the bulk of the kits. Next week, our valued customers will start seeing ENTIRE paint lines appearing IN STOCK... Due to the logistic of this operation, we can only offer shipping-within-24-hrs, which is not quite like 'same day'.

Your Feedback:

My experience with Kitlinx has been excellent. Just a week or so I ordered some paint and varnish. The next day I realized that I needed some masking tape. I put an order in and mention that I had I another order pending and if Kitlinx could combine both orders. You did and gave me a $5 credit towards my next order. How great is that.

One thing that slows me down on your website is not enough filters. If you click on 1/48 airplane kit to buy, you get 1913 choices. Please help. I have tried different search words and numbers without success. I know there are brands of kits that I would like to see and possibly buy.

That's it.

Keep up the good work

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 "*"
