Your Feedback:

Just a note about both my recent experiences purchasing two books from Kitlinx. The two books were International Air Power Review Compendium editions 4 and 5. Both books were easy to order and arrived in excellent condition. I'm completely satisfied in this regard as it's the most important matter. However, here's an area that can be improved. It took about a week after both items were purchased for them to be actually sent.  That's way too long and there's really no acceptable reason for it.

Overall, I'm pleased with both my purchases and look forward to doing more business with Kitlinx in the future

NOTE FROM LOIC: Kitlinx has made HUGE changes with this move. We have a new relationship with two retail stores, sharing inventory, moving products around. On the "book subject", our 3,000+ titles are not organized on bookshelves yet. The gorgeous bookshelves are coming in the next week or two - they are located in the SSLC Store, available to the walk-ins. Because the books are not fully organized, it is sometimes difficult to find specific titles. But we ALL AGREE, it is unacceptable! A mail order operation has to be efficient...  Kitlinx packers have less than 30 seconds to find each product.

Always a great experience ordering from Kitlinx. Stock is plentiful, prices are great, and shipping is fast. Kitlinx is a go-to spot for my hobby modeling needs. Keep up the great work!

John, from Michigan just earned $5 credit!


NOTE FROM LOIC: ScaleMate connections were updated this week. It now stands at 56,638 links between Kitlinx products and ScaleMates reviews!! (60% of available items in the database)

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 "*"
