I agree with Brian "....I don't have the bloody room.....  I have about five 1/24-28 scale and they never see the light of day, whereas my 1/72 and 1/144 models can be displayed by the dozen, or more.

on a smaller scale an imperfection would be more catastrophic, while in a larger scale it would appear less noticable

Also, the larger the scale, the larger the imperfections and the more 
work it takes to cover/fix them. In the smaller scale, a small 
scratch is just that. In a larger scale, it is that much bigger and 
takes that much more to repair. Think about it first.
