I think in many respects you are right that in the mainstay of aircraft modelling seems to have moved upto 1:48th scale from 1:72nd. And yes in 2017 the split was more equal, where as this year it has definiately favoured the larger scale. I started with 1:72nd scale back in the early 70's and have stuck with it for reasons of space limitations and cost.
A 1:72nd scale Hunter has also been on my wishlist, together with other Cold War jets like the Sea Hawk, Sea Venom, Buccaneer, Jaguar leading upto more modern jets like the Tornado.
I'm sure lots of other modellers have a full wishlist which they will think equally deserving, but my only hope is that we all continue to support Airfix so that it continues to progress and in time we all get some new tool kits from our varied wish lists!!
