[QUOTE]Naval Air Station Pensacola, National Museum of Naval Aviation. Photos of the rare Japanese seaplane NIK Kyofu Unrestored parts of a Japanese NIK Kyofu aircraft, codenamed Rex by the Allies, are stored in a National Naval Aviation Museum warehouse at Naval Air Station Pensacola on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Only 97 NIK Kyofu aircraft were manufactured and this is one of only 3 still in existence. Currently, there are no plans to utilize this in a trade and exchange, but if there was a project that would result in substantial benefit to the museum, that airframe could be a candidate for the program.[\QUOTE]

I read other places that it is not in exchange program, but could be if a interesting project came up. So I wonder if it will be restored

There is one of only three or four N1K2 already on display at Pensacola.
