As a relatively new member of this list, I know I should desist, but
what the heck ;-)

Advantages of 1/48:

You can actually see the details without a magnifying glass
or reading glasses
You can actually find the parts on the basement floor after a
palsy attack
People from all age groups can enjoy your work

Advantages of 1/72:

More subject matter
Lower prices
Older IPMS judges can't see that detail you missed, but give the award
to a 1/48 FW-190 anyway

Have fun :-)
