Kitlinx Newsletter - Jan 7, 2022



  • Line Update Alert - Schiffer Publishing is coming to Kitlinx! We are now going to regularly bring-in these awesome books. Loic, who is a HUGE reference book fan (books were 10% of the GreatModels business), did not like the "old" Schiffer books. The pictures were not high quality, it lacked computer enhancements, and the books did not often include color aircraft profiles. Schiffer is doing a GREAT JOB in upgrading their books to 21st Century standards! Now about 1,300 Schiffer books showing at Kitlinx. About 350+ currently in stock. Many broken pictures right now, it should be all cleaned by the end of the weekend

  • Kitlinx Business Plan - This last week's event in changing our 'way of doing business' was an interesting experience! First, our valued customers can get a better perception of the "Kitlinx Way". Kitlinx is proud to offer over 100,000 modeling products to its customers, with cross-references and fast multi-keywords search. Second, our valued customers can realize that the "status of each item" is critical in optimizing their satisfaction. 

  • Collections - The saga continues from California to Utah! Kitlinx received confirmation that these 7 pallets were arriving Friday... Obviously NOT! The GOOD NEWS, tracking shows it's in Salt Lake City hub. Delivery now scheduled for Monday! Please search Kits / Books / Accessories / Wood Ships regularly to see changes in inventory. REMEMBER, putting a kit in your cart does NOT guarantee you captured it, especially if the customer waits several hours before checking out. Please check- out as quickly as possible on Collections where inventory is "1".

  • Weekly Sale - Kitlinx will change its weekly sale to MONDAY! Stay posted. You should see a banner on the homepage

Your Feedback:

Kitlinx is a wonderful on-line site to shop for anything related to modeling plastic kits and the likes.

Loic is a wonderful person who does not hesitate to take extra steps to provide better services. 

Keep it up Loic. Wish you another successful year in 2022

My latest order consisted of several decal sheets that came up on the "sale" list. After doing a sort by scale for anything in 32nd scale,  I quickly found several sheets of Aviatic and HGW lozenge to add to my growing box of that type of decals.  A couple of weeks later and they had landed in my mail slot.   I was very happy with the decals that I received, none of them looked like used or abused decals as you would expect from a sale group.

Thanks for giving me a great place to spend my money

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 was well pleased with your service , I will be sure to check it again in the future for my modeling needs . Wish you had more 1/144 scale decals for WW2 planes though :-(

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 "*"
