Thanks Ken Z!
You led my thoughts to the right direction!

I started this discussion because I was not sure why do I stick to 1/48 
myself. Why did I sell all my 1/72 two seater kits? My plan was, you see, to 
build scouts in 1/48 and two seaters, bombers and such in 1/72. There is 
still much more kits of the larger OT a/c in 1/72, so that would have made 
sense. But - of course - it would look ridiculous for a 1/48 Fokker in your 
right hand attacking a 1/72 BE2 in your left hand!! ;-)
