Kitlinx Newsletter - July 15, 2022 - IPMS Nationals is next week!!


Breaking News

1/48 - Tamiya Models - TAM61123 - Lockheed P-38J Lightning Plastic Model Kit - We ran out of our inventory on that kit almost immediately. We noticed that ALL US suppliers ran out of this kit as well. But we secured another batch heading our way.  We should have a few extras... We are afraid that Tamiya USA is running out of them, so hopefully not!!

Please note that Tamiya has INCREASED prices across the board this past week! The bad news for Kitlinx is that pre-ordered Kits for this HOT RELEASE was at the $81 MSRP, but Kitlinx got their kits at the $86 MRSP. This is the "game we play" in this ridiculous 2022 inflation... No worries, Kitlinx customers got a GREAT DEAL on that new release!

Until this kit is kept IN STOCK at Kitlinx at all times, it will be on "Pre-Order" status

  • MRS Hobbyshop is doing a "Customer Appreciation Day" on July 16th (Saturday) at the South Salt Lake location (460 Lawndale Dr, SLC UT 84115). Model check-in will be 10am-12:30pm. Voting goes until 4:30pm and winners announced at 5pm. Come and share your hobby skills if you are a "local" or passing by our beautiful valley!
  • Kitlinx is waiting for another order from Lukgraph, including the AWESOME 1/32 Be.2c and Be.2e/f family! Should be all in stock in about 10 days! The Hansa Brandenburg Type NW should be released in 4-5 weeks. Have you heard of the Westland Wapiti? It is the replacement of the DH.9A in the RAF. Also coming soon on you modeling benches from this company. A kit announced 5-years ago, but finally coming to fruition! Kitlinx has ADJUSTED PRICING on the Lukgraph line since we don't have a "middle supplier" anymore. We hope our customers will enjoy the DIRECT IMPORTS!!
  • Kitlinx will make a IPMS Nationals Newsletter directly from Nebraska! We will let you know if any supplier is making some exciting announcements...
