Your feedback:

I just got my order this morning and I like how it was securely packaged. I have never ordered online before and you have made it very easy! I definitely will be ordering from you again, thank you very much!

Richard from New Mexico


Pleased with selection options , pricing and quick delivery-miss the old Great Models website-much friendlier and easier to search & find things.

RESPONSE from Loic: Robert, Are you saying that GreatModels was easier to search?

Loic-it’s been awhile, but I seem remember it being easy to find items [at GreatModels.com]-and the links to the various modeling sites was a great help.

I just need to take some time and explore on your site-and it’s great to have you back!

Bob from Tennessee

NOTES from Loic: 

  • GMW used to be linked to 20,000+ reviews. Most of these items are not available after 10 years! 8,200 reviews remain connected and currently showing on Kitlinx

  • Kitlinx is connected to 46,000 Scalemates pages, which themselves have many reviews, walk-around & related accessories and books!

  • Scalemates also includes pricing comparison with other vendors and availability of products - Kitlinx is a proud partner of Scalemates!

  • Kitlinx programmers have NOT been available in January, albeit our insistence and persistence! Many upgrades are still coming... please be patient!

  • The 'search box' on the top-left corner  (blue line)  "ENTER KEYWORDS" is the SAME as GMW. Just put many keywords separated by spaces (NO asterisk '*'!)

  • GMW used to carry about 70,000 items, 55,000 of them available for purchase, 30,000 in stock

  • Kitlinx shows 109,000 items of which 91,400 are available for purchase, 16,620 are out of stock and 1,232 are Pre-Orders. 16,183 SKUs are in stock!

NOTE: Revell of Germany 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet is released in Europe! We cannot bring it via Airmail as this kit is TOO LARGE and it would be cost prohibitive. We will wait until the sea shipment will arrive in the US! The GOOD NEWS? Revell of Germany is well and alive...


Several "hot" kits landed this week! Dragon 1/35 M7 Priest and Tauchpanzer III Ausf.F Diving tank but especially the Tamiya 1/35 M551 Sheridan. The Tamiya barrel accessory for the Sheridan was SHORT SHIPPED from the supplier. But we immediately turned around and got many from another source, expected early next week!


Highly expected Das Werk 1/35 Faun L900 with Sd.Ah.115 trailer will arrive on Monday!
