Kitlinx Newsletter - Aug 27, 2021



  • 2021 IPMS National Convention Report - We met many of you at the Nationals, but what was very surprising is how many modelers we met that did NOT know about Kitlinx! We want to change that! First we encouraged attendees to create an account. PLEASE help Kitlinx, by bringing your knowledge of our company to your local IPMS Clubs/friends and share your experience

  • Search Upgrade - Kitlinx FINALLY decided to not wait until the full system is operational "on the cloud" to upgrade its side-column searches. You should see some search-refining tools by next week! It's a first-iteration, let us know what you think

  • Customer Service - Welcome to Jalene to answer your emails starting this coming week. The phone service will be opened the following week. We will start with a 2pm-6pm MST window. Phone Customer Service will be posted as soon as available. We told her how nice Modelers can be!

The lines we brought back from Nationals are below - as of today, we still have about a couple hundred book titles we need to finish.

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 1/32 Special Hobby Westland Whirlwind. This machine shot down two Ju.88!

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

  • As this picture is ELONGATED, make sure most of your model is mostly on the right side (a gradient will be applied to the left)

  • HINT: close-up of details is BEST! We want to see your work! Be proud of your model, whatever your skills

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

  • You should tell us the Manufacturer/scale of the subject - an any pertinent information related to the displayed model.

  • By sending us the picture, you give authorization to Kitlinx to post that picture publicly

  • Kitlinx reserves the right to post or NOT post the picture(s)

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 "*"
