Fujimi models of Japan has announced the December 2017 release of FUJ46003, a “deluxe” version of the proposed Super Yamato Class Battleship Kii in 1/700 scale.
This appears to be a reissue of Fujimi's Super Yamato Class Battleship Kii molding from 2016, but this deluxe edition of the kit also comes with a set of two very extensive photoetch brass frets.

According to Hobbylink Japan:

“Apparently unsatisfied with the 18-inch (46cm) guns of the Yamato and Musashi, the largest ever installed on a warship, the IJN wanted to up the ante even further by installing monstrous 20-inch (51cm) guns in three two-gun turrets, rather than the original three-gun turrets, on two ”Super Yamato”-class battleships, but those plans were abandoned in 1942.

Almost 65 years later, Fujimi has finally realized the dream of mounting those massive cannons on a Yamato hull with the release of their new ‘Super Yamato-Class Battleship’ waterline kit in 1/700 scale. Sharply molded in gray styrene, the kit includes the new two-gun turrets and 20-inch guns of the "Super Yamato" as well as the normal three-gun turrets and 18-inch guns of the Yamato and Musashi, so it appears that the kit includes parts for any version. Add this interesting ‘what if’ Super Yamato to your collection today!”

The hypothetical Imperial Japanese Navy superbattleship Kii can be preordered for US$41.02 from Hobbylink Japan at https://hlj.com/product/FUJ46020.
