Kitlinx Newsletter - Dec.24 - Merry Christmas to our Valued Customers!


  • NEW Line Alert - Aztec (not the airbrush) is an accessory line for aircraft, coming from Europe. Just updated

  • Searches - Kitlinx is simplifying its searches. First, we have removed the ADVANCED SEARCH. Now that the left column searches includes "Scale"/"Mfg"/"Availability", there is not need to this search. Next, we are improving the "left column searches". If TOO MANY items are searched, it takes TOO LONG to wait for the server to sort all the results. A search should not go over 5,000 items.

  • Collections - Daniel's Collection will show up on Monday. It is 7 pallets with 450+ books and 750+ Kits. Mostly armor and ship subjects. In the meantime, Kitlinx has worked hard to complete the input of other Collections. Click here to see the amazing Wood Ship Listing, Kit Listing & Book Listing

  • Paint Picture - Kitlinx has invested time to illustrate the Tamiya XF series of paints with individual pictures rather than a generic picture. We are also working on Gunze H- series. All these paints are IN STOCK at ALL TIMES.

  • Tora, Tora, Tora! - It came to Kitlinx attention that EDU11155 WW II A6M2 Zero Type 21 over Pearl Harbor Combo was overpriced. One issue in having SEVERAL suppliers, is that some suppliers are "price-gauging". Kitlinx usually catches these issues and funnel its business to the most affordable source, unless the main supplier is out, which forces us to source what is available. We INVITE OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS to let us know if some prices are OFF! The same issue happened last week with the popular Modelsvit 1/48 F-82F/G Twin Mustang.  

  • 1/48 - Revell of Germany - RVL4967 - Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird Kitlinx has decided to NOT fly this kit from Europe. It's TOO LARGE! The cost of shipping does not allow such acquisition at this time. If some of the MANY customers who pre-ordered this kit ABSOLUTELY want it NOW, Kitlinx can still bring it over-the-pond, but it will be at an additional shipping charge (about 50% of the value of the kit). Kitlinx will be patient and wait for the US release which should happen soon!

Rob Humphrey, from West Jordan Utah, a dear friend of Kitlinx, part-time employee, and Guinness-record for most kits built [about 7,000] , modeled this Airfix 1/72 Blackburn Buccaneer against a sky background

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.

You guys are getting to be my one stop shop for everything Modelling.  When I need something or am just shopping for a kit I come here first! Prices are very competitive and the selection is huge!

I have now ordered twice from Kitlinx without any issue. I must admit I was hesitant at first seeing a rare Kit I wanted at a great price, but in the end, that order and a second one a week later, were sent really fast! I am also in Canada and with the Christmas season, both orders were sent well packed in Dec and fast! I would not hesitate to order from them again

I recently had a problem with an order.  A decal sheet had the wrong stock number on your website and my order for this item was cancelled.  I really needed the decal sheet to complete a build and I complained to Kitlinx.  Kitlinx honored my complaint and sent a similar decal sheet from another manufacturer.  Kitlinx went over and above to ensure that the customer was happy.  I certainly was, and you can bet I'll continue doing business with Kitlinx!  Thank you and Happy Holidays!

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 "*"
