I think it might also depend on nationality.  Growing up in London, and 
mainly building Airfix in the early 1970s, 1/72nd scale was the most 
available and cost-effective, so I have stuck with that.  I think a lot of 
Eastern Europeans grew up on KP which did mostly 1/72nd scale.  Nowadays I 
prefer 1/72 because it matches my collection, space considerations (I have 
more than 50 built kits) and I like the aesthetic.
