Kitlinx Newsletter - Dec.17 - One week before Christmas!

 

INTERNET SECURITY:

  • Fraud & Hackers - There is a scary world out there. Some shady people sitting in their home in various countries use their computer skills to defraud "the system". We heard that merchant providers have # breach attempts each day! Kitlinx wants to protect our valued customer's private data with the newest technology.

  • Malware Warning - Few customers contacted Kitlinx about some "Malwarebyte Software Warning" while using their credit cards into our system. Our Provider has investigated the matter thoroughly and confirms that transactions are secure. Customers concerned about security can check the "lock on the browser", right before the URL. Click on it and you should see "Verified by: Let's Encrypt"

  • Credit Card Protection - Kitlinx has eliminated ALL credit card data from its server. It means that the customers will have to RE-ENTER a credit card for each transaction. First time customers might have to provide additional info, and their orders CANNOT ship to a different address than the billing address (only NEW customers). 

  • International Orders - Kitlinx requests customers from "a few sensitive countries" to ONLY use Paypal. During this COVID period, 1st Class International Mailings are NOT provided to countries like Australia and New Zealand until further notice.

  • PayPal - Paypal is providing a safe environment for your purchase, and an easy claim process - Please try to resolve any issue with Kitlinx before you file a claim. Paypal accounts for about 50% of Kitlinx transactions

 

 

BREAKING NEWS:

  • Collections - Jason's collection is growing by the day! There are 400+ kits showing right now, and growing! About 200-300 kits left to enter (both injection and wood ships)

  • Grex Airbrush - These airbrushes and their accessories are now fully IN STOCK at Kitlinx!

  • HobbyON New Airbrush - Ready for some fun new technology? HobbyON is the group owning Kitlinx LLC and MRS Inc.

Darryl Tuominen, from Ontario Canada, modeled this gorgeous AFV Club M5A1 with Legends resin sandbags

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

Rules:

  • 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

All items were just what I wanted and expected, as usual. Am awaiting another order now. Will try to send a shot of one of my many dioramas and the original picture I used as a guide.  My entire project was done with Kitlinx products - what else would I use???

Skies

1/48 - Revell of Germany - RVL4967 - Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird That bird is released in Europe. It's a BIG BIRD. Kitlinx asked Santa to try to fit it on his sleigh... and yes, that's "air mail"!

A note about this kit above: Kitlinx was overpriced on this kit because it was from an oversea source - until a US source got it. Please do not hesitate to contact us to correct prices. Dealing with 96,178 readily available products and 861 pre-orders is a daunting task!

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 "*"
