Default Any UPS employees out there?

It may seem like a weird posting but you see UPS has a US based website that only allows UPS employees to purchase from. I'm a big fan of the UPS livery and this employee only site contains 3 very nice 1/100 Pacmin models that I would love to buy.

I'm wondering if there is a UPS employee amongst us that may be interested in helping me out (with compensation of course).

Not meaning to hijack your thread but if there are any Virgin America employees around too I'd like to buy that 1:144 VA A320 their company store is selling. There was someone here who had something to do with VA but judging by his non-response it was fairly obvious he wasn't in the least bit interested.

It appears you can buy it straight from VA yourself.

Oh wow thank you!! I didn't know this was available because up until recently it was only available to company employees.

$215 for a Pacmin 744F is the cheapest I have yet to see.

Without the manufacturer listed I emailed the site and was given this information:

Hi Andreas,fficeffice" />>>
The manufacturer is Pacific Miniatures.>>
Thank you, >>


Also, I have dealt with Pacmin directly for ordering a few Airbus models and asked my contact there to see if I could order directly from Pacmin for these UPS models. She looked into (with the website/company information I provided) it and was told that unfortunately due to licensing agreements with UPS they could not supply them directly

Does Pacmin take individual orders or only in bulk for airlines?

In case anyone is interested I was able to place an order and the 4 models arrived today (I can again confirm that these are indeed Pacmin 1:100 models, shipped directly from Pacmin).

I was able to ask my local UPS delivery woman for some help and she was kind enough to give me her employee number and location ID. It turns out that the location ID wasn't accepted on the website (being from Canada) so the helpful website support operator gave me a location ID to use instead
