Aichi E16A1 "Zuiun" in 1/1

The Aichi E16A1 "Zuiun" (Paul) in 1/1 we first saw during the Shizuoka Hobby Show is ready and is on display in Fuji-Q Highland amusement park from June 17 until July 30. 
Below is the poster ("Super Multi Sea Plane"??? Only for those who can decipher Japanglish) and a few photos from Chuita- (Twitter).

I must say, it looks very impressive! Not something you could mail order from you favorite hobby shop, and imagine the size of the "box" if you could! Seriously though, a brilliant effort to bring an otherwise extinct type back to "life". Hopefully more replicas like this can be built in the future. (E7K anyone?)

I will assume that "multi seaplane" is a bad translation for multi-role seaplane and that "super" means advanced or best (as in comparison to previous aircraft such as E13A1, F1M2, E7N2 etc.).

Which manufacturer is going to scale that down to 1/48?
