I ordered a kit marked “available”. It arrived a week later. Right when it said it would. Flawless transaction. I used local pickup, so can’t comment on shipping. Things I need are always in stock. Great place

I made a fairly large order of AK and other paints on August 26 and it all arrived in excellent condition today. The Kitlinx page had made it quite clear that some of them were overseas orders and could take up to two weeks to get here, but in fact it only took 12 days. Well done, Kitlinx! Now to try out the paint, which I've never used before but comes highly recommended. We'll see...

1/48 - Revell of Germany - RVL4967 - Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird
Let's talk about this bird! Yes you read this right, it has been flying over Europe right now... but unfortunately its hypersonic speed will not grace our US suppliers very soon. So Kitlinx is IMPORTING directly from Europe. Expect these kits in about 10 days for the pre-orders... It might make it under the Christmas tree!

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

[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 "*"
