So seizing the opportunity I shot back the following tweet, and actually won one of the models.
The model arrived here this morning and my picture of it prompted a lot of comment on both twitter and Facebook

Interestingly enough on a side note on their desktop model page PacMin use a Kuban 733 which could be ZK-TLB as seen on MRC Aviation HERE
Air New Zealand have got their own livery on the box and all

The model is solid resin, and sits on a molded base and is true to life with correct graphics including the registration under the wing.
Here is a view of the completed model
ZK-OKP in Hobbit livery fits in quite nicely with my collection of Air New Zealand aircraft in Lord of the Rings livery B744s ZK-NBV & ZK-SUJ, B763 ZK-NCG, sadly A320 ZK-OJA is missing

And finally ZK-OKP in its final position next to a couple of Qantas B744s
