Excellent work - congratulations!

My immediate thought was that it would be a really fun project to get 
the emulator running on something like a Raspberry Pi or Arduino 
interfaced to a real 480x128 LCD! :-)

Did a little searching and found a promising display: 
(White backlight) 
(Blue backlight)

Another possibility is the Hitachi LM215:

but the problem is that there is no onboard controller so it needs to be 
driven directly, there is an interesting project using it here:

(actually a LOT of interesting projects on that page!)

and here are a couple more 480x128 displays (not certain about suppliers 
for these though):
