Kitlinx Newsletter - Sep. 24, 2021

Dear <name>, Thank you for shopping at Kitlinx, llc!



  • Refining Searches - Kitlinx is proud to announce that we implemented a brand new "refining search". As soon as you put a keyword in the TOP SEARCH BOX, or select a left-column search, you should see a couple refining search boxes on the left column, with related Scale / Manufacturers. It should help you finding products easier. Next week, an additional 'refining box' will add the availability of the products (in stock/ available in US/ available in Europe/ Pre-Orders)

  • Paypal - We announced in our "Breaking News" that Paypal Express was removed from the website. You may notice that the "Express" Option is still available. Our programmers made it work with the automatic credits

  • Automatic Credits - No need to check the checkbox during the payment step to claim your CREDITS. Now customer can just check out and the credits are automatically deducted from your invoice

  • Retail Connections - These are the lines we connected this week: DML/Dragon

  • Now Kitlinx showing 21,420 different products IN STOCK!

  • MRS Hobbyshop Salt Lake City -  We are proud to welcome the customer list of MRS Hobbyshop in the South Salt Lake City area. Below are pictures of the shop... still a work in progress. MRS proud itself to carry a VERY extensive selection of paints IN STOCK at all times! Kitlinx customers now benefit from this selection online, as could any Utah customer walking into the shop. Some pictures below for your enjoyment!

The address is:

1938 BMW R71 in 21st Panzer Div. Markings. "Klaus" is holding an 88mm Tiger I AP shell. The motorcycle is fully functional

This sidecar is a reproduction of the BMW R71 on the CJ750 sidecar. The German tooling of the BMW R71 was acquired in 1940 by the Soviet Union who produced the "IMZ-Ural M-72", then sold to the Chinese who produced the Chang Jiang. The BMW R71 does not have the drive shaft to the third side-car wheel like the BMW R75.

Mark Rossmann from Mesa, Arizona built this 1/48 Hasegawa F-4EJ 'Kai'. His comments below

Model is well manufactured as with most Hasegawa kits. The worst part of construction was adding all of the small decals. Took me about 10 days to do that.

Paint: Gloss Gull Grey over flat white, flat black, silver and flat red Testor rattle cans.

Decals: from CAM – 48-044 Phar East Phantoms


Serial #: 37-8323

Modex: 323

#301st Squadron, 7th Air Wing (JASDF) 1988


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 - Kitlinx will format it for you

  • 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)

  • PLEASE add a ONE COLOR BACKGROUND to the model. It's easier to manipulate in Photoshop to meet Kitlinx guidelines

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

  • Kitlinx reserves the right to post the picture(s) when it is needed.

Your Feedback:

Requested feedback is always important. After a couple rocky orders tied to your big move and misplaced items, I'm happy with this order.

Timing was spot-on, European hard-to-find items arrived, order cart worked like a charm. Thank you Kitlinx!

NOTE FROM LOIC: We appreciate constructive comments. We recognize Kitlinx is trying to program a fun and efficient operation, but that program sometimes fails. We were 9 hours offline about a week ago (server failure). Our Paypal Express checkout process was in shamble until the programmers resolved the "credit" issue. These issues are frustrating for everyone... especially to the boss because the programmers have to make these changes on Friday evening when everyone is going to enjoy their weekend... Thank you for your patience, the system is working better every day!

Kitlinx is my go to store for all my model needs, they have many companies listed, for anything you could want, they even credited unused postage to my account, Thank you Kitlinx

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 "*"
