Let's talk to our "FIRST TIME CUSTOMERS" this week
Kitlinx is a "broker" of models, books and accessories (KIT↔LINKS). It means we have ~16,000 in stock items, especially the HOTTEST products. But we source ~80,000 other products, in the US and abroad - remember that's why Loic came back to the business. NO ONE offers a similar system at this operational scale.
Look at the STATUS on each item page. When it says "Special Order in Europe, Ships in less than 2 weeks"... we mean it! Actually, it's an estimate (Kitlinx does not control the Postal Service or Customs). Our international order of Monday arrived TODAY (Friday!)! That's the best we've seen...
Look at your ORDER STATUS - Kitlinx offers an update on items we source. There is an "expected date" on each sourced item.
Watch for MULTIPLE items. Some customers order x10 of one product. Even distributors might not have those quantities. Orders are held, if not COMPLETE.
NO "expected date" on ONE of your ordered product? It will HOLD your order, so please look, and let us know what to do... that probably means the supplier sold out (between updates - that's why our NEW system coming later this year will automate this process). Suppliers restock often, but Kitlinx does not control their business. If you say nothing, the missing item will be refunded/credited and your remaining order will ship automatically after 30-days.

Hot Pre-Orders Alert!
These are the hottest Pre-Orders coming in upcoming weeks/months!
Kitlinx is reconnecting with Eduard from the Czech Republic. This line is SUPER HOT, and we are committed to keep it IN STOCK (at least the NEW and HOT items!)
Below are the August releases that could be IN STOCK next week! (with the 1/48 Chattanooga P-51D one-time release!)
1/48 - AMK Model Kits - AGK88007 - F-14D Super Tomcat Fighter (New Tool) (SEPTEMBER 2019!)
The MSRP of this kit is still "in the air"! We are hearing that the manufacturer set a MAP at $69. But it does not seem to be followed by US distributors. Kitlinx will follow "common sense". If no MAP is agreed, then it will be a STANDARD DISCOUNT from MSRP. It will mean that Kitlinx will refund or charge the difference from the agreed PRICE.
Tamiya is releasing P-38J (and G) in its 1/48 collection... MSRP is now official
1/32 - Wingnut Wings - WNW32039 - Handley-Page 0/400 - mid/late 2019 - RESERVATION PRICE
Air Connection - AIR004 - Camouflage and Markings of the Panzerwaffe
Trumpeter 1/200 Titanic will sail on mid-2019. Grab it while you can! (change of code)
Check your order status! If ONE item cannot be sourced because suddenly out of stock at a supplier, OR you ordered several of the same item but we could not source them ALL... then your order will "NOT SHIP" until COMPLETE". We are working on having the customers change their order status via the website to "force shipment" (like GreatModels used to work).
