Hot Pre-Orders Alert! 

These are the hottest Pre-Orders coming in upcoming weeks/months! 

  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

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!  

  • 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 available products, in the US and abroad - remember that's why Loic came back to the business. NO ONE in our industry 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 made on Monday arrived 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 "MAKE A DECISION"... 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. After 30-days, if Kitlinx receives no communication from customer, the missing item will be refunded/credited and your remaining order will ship automatically.
