Customisable Fields

Create your own columns in the database. If you have special requirements that are not built into KitBase (e.g. Theatre of Operation or specifics such as a captain/pilot's name) these can be added quickly and easily.

KitBase supports Text, Whole Number, Cash Value, Yes/No and Date fields.

Customisable Views

Choose the columns that you want to see in the list. Columns can be rearranged very easily and data can be ordered Ascending or Descending.

Set up multiple views and quickly switch between them using the view list.

This enables you to easily set up different perspectives on your data, for example 'By Nation', 'By Real Manufacturer' or 'By Purchase Date, Latest First'.

You can print professionally formatted reports of your kits and accessories from several perspectives:

  • Real Manufacturer (e.g. Supermarine)
  • Product Manufacturer (e.g. Airfix)
  • Location / Location Number (e.g. Storage Cabinet Drawer #3)
  • Nation
  • Acquisition Date

Quick Reference List

If you've ever gone to a show and thought "That's a bargain, but I think I've already got one", the quick reference list is the answer. You can print compact lists of your kits and accessories for easy reference.

As with the other reports, you can filter (e.g. just 1/35 Vehicles).

Example Quick Reference List (PDF) - You will need Acrobat Reader to view.

Other example Quick List reports:

Aircraft (Injection) 1/144 1/32 1/48 1/72
Aircraft (Resin) 1/144 1/48 1/72
Aircraft (Vacform)
Vehicles (Injection) 1/35 1/72
Vehicles (Resin)
Ships

Thanks to Hannants for providing sample data.
