What's New?

  • Kitlinx personnel was VERY ACTIVE this week in entering more COLLECTIONS! Both Kits and Books. Look at the Squadron/Signal books list in stock including many out of print books!
  • STORMS! As you may read in the News, 2/3 of the US is under severe winter storm warnings, especially on the East Coast. We wish our customers to stay safe and warm - and don't hesitate to build more kits during the "down time"! Such events also affect the shipping carriers. Two of our UPS orders have been delayed by 3-days! Utah is receiving a thick layer of snow this coming weekend! We are currently at 180% of our ytd average!


Your Feedback:  

I received the kit in fine condition. Good communication via email. It took KitLinx over a week to ship it after it was ordered, but all is well

George from San Diego, California, just earned $5 credit!

I didn’t win the lottery so I wasn’t able to buy all I wanted to from Kitlinx. However, the order I did make arrived in a timely manner in perfect condition (great packing job) Thanks again for great and dependable service

Charles from Felton, California just earned $5 credit!

My order arrived on time and in near perfect condition.
For reference it is a 1974 version of Revell's Cutty Sark 1/96 model.

What I received is exactly what I ordered and the condition is better than I expected for a near-50-year-old model.
There are a few loose parts in the box (that is completely expected) but I think all the parts are there.
I'm very favorably impressed that the instruction sheets are included, are  legible and not yellowed or torn.

All in all, I am completely satisfied with this purchase and I look forward to doing business with you again.
I would say again soon but it is going to take me well over a year to complete this model.
If I do happen to have an opportunity to order from you again or to recommend you to anyone I will be very glad to do so.

Thank you very much for providing such a fine service


Darryl from Capitan, New Mexico, just earned $5 credit!

Search Tips:

"Tricks" to the POWERFUL search engine of Kitlinx (the SEARCH BOX at the TOP of the website). Below are the TOOLS to search ~ 100,000+ available products (67% in US, 33% in Europe)

1. Use the top box search on Homepage  

2. Please note that the keywords you type will stay in the search box. It will allow to correct typos or slightly change your search

3. Use several keywords separated by spaces to zero-in your search. Example: "1/48 spitfire aircraft_model"

4. Use the underscore "_", like armor_models or Tamiya_ or aircraft_accessor. Example: "1/48 spitfire aircraft_access"

5. Use keyword "instock" to JUST search for in-stock items  

6. If you are searching for SALE items, use the keyword "~special~"

7. Don't forget the Manufacturer's link on TOP of each Product-Page. It quickly shows ALL available product from the same manufacturer

8. DO NOT use the asterisk "*"
