The price seems high when you factor in that the (Japanese) pilot, floats, machine guns, land wheels, and all electronics are sold separately. And the wing just doesn't look right.... looks like a leftover "Big Stick" constant-chord wing with widely spaced ribs. The W.29 wing should actually be slightly tapered from root to tip and the chord thickness goes from thin at the root to thick in the middle to nearly flat at the tips. Just doesn't seem scale enough for my money, but maybe I'm just too picky.
Here's some good pics of a model that shows what the wing ought to look like:

Would forgive them the semi scale wing if they had done the model in reasonaly correct WWI German Navy hex lozenge camo instead of the fake silver dope scheme....
Price is a touch high, but given the included floats and extensive struts involved, plus the fake engine detail, it is not too far out of line.
