Mike Zoetmulder built this Revell 1/25 '66 Mustang Romper Stomper 

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

  • 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 the picture(s) when it is needed.

Your Feedback:

NOTE from customer from "Down Under" where US Postal Service has discontinued service until further notice:


I really wanted this order - particularly the little punch and die set - so I am happy to wait until the ban is lifted.

I am actually waiting for two other orders originating in the United States substantially delayed due to the same issue [...]

If so, could you kindly email me prior to shipping?  I am currently stuck in the State of New South Wales for the same reason there are postage problems:  bans by State and Federal governments on movement of people and goods due to COVID-19 quarantining [...]

I hope this isn't too complicated.  We are all pretty well fed up with the effects of COVID-19 here, but at least we are vaccinated, alive and healthy!

I’m totally happy with Kitlinx. It has become my first choice for purchasing my hobby supplies. I’m amazed at the sheer variety and amount of the products that are stocked by them. Also, their customer service is second to none. I really appreciate the crediting of overpaid shipping charges

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 "*"
