The OP model has a 16HP engine, this one has a 24HP engine, I would think that this one is a much larger machine compared to the one on the OP.

It's very possible that they scaled two different chassis for the two powerplants. If you compare things like louvers, headlight, fuel cap cutout and that dark cylindrical thingy sticking out the side of the cowling, they look the same.

I'd go take a look at it, but I am afraid what that could turn into.

Yes they do look very alike. I also think that the 24 is scaled up compared to the 16.
I may be wrong, I'm just going by the model designation that seems to indicate the engine size (like your blower is a 9 for 9HP).
Agreed, going to look at something (that you know you should not even be considering buying) that you really like is an uncertain situation.

I know how weak I could be. I dont need to tell you. I know how many you have collected. As it is I'm trying to not think about it.
Here is a vid of a 16. control levers are slightly different however.

And a 13

JDM stands for Japanese Domestic Market or sometimes Japanese Domestic Model
Wado is a a manufacturer in Japan.
