Your feedback:

Thanks for fulfilling several of my online orders recently.  Your prompt responses confirming orders, great website, and awesome customer service tied with quick shipping of most orders sets you above the rest.  And you find ways to get those hard-to-find kits!

I look forward to purchasing more kits from you.  Keep up the great work!

NEW ARRIVAL link - Top of Left Column Searches

We have added a NEW link on the left-column-searches. It's NEW ARRIVAL. It shows the New Arrivals, with a small thumb-picture and a 'quick add' button if you don't want the hassle to go to the Item Page. It's a great overview of the MASSIVE new releases flowing to the market... We will work further to add sub-searches, like by "scale" and by "Categories"

Our programmers are having some difficulties to organize by decreasing dates. It is still "a work in progress"!


Lines Updated 

  • Hasegawa - Prices have DROPPED significantly! (that's almost 600 available products!)


NEW Line: ERRATA! We screwed up the pricing on this line. Now it's corrected

If you see lines that need update, please send me an email loic@kitlinx.com 


CALCULATED SHIPPING OVER 5lbs - Kitlinx tried a new process to encourage LARGE orders. Shipping costs were NOT calculated at check-out when your package was over 5lbs, due to some potential weight miscalculation of multiple products. The accurate weight would give the customer an exact pricing. 

The problem with this process is the communication with the customers to claim the shipping when the order is ready to leave. It is a manual process, and "as most manual processes", it is prone to email miscommunication and internal follow up. We recently shipped MANY packages that were waiting 'shipping payments' while these payments were already made via Paypal. It is easily forgotten in 100s of transactions daily!

This feature is STILL available for packages over 5lbs - please respond to the emails Kitlinx sends.

Kitlinx now offers the calculated shipping pricing over 5lbs-orders as well, especially since many customers are in neighboring States, and shipping to these States is very affordable - regardless the weight. Please note that FedEx comes with a 20% discount which is now in competition with USPS, especially for States cross-the-country

Please be aware that ONE CRITICAL Distributor of ours has moved its warehouse this week. It was unexpected and has disturbed our order processing for AFV Club, AMMO and Wingnut Wings. They are now back on their feet! Thank you for your patience
