Why Wingnut Wings’ 1/32 Lancaster makes sense

Since the announcement that Wingnut Wings’ first effort outside of their typical First World War subject matter will be a 1/32 scale Lancaster, I’ve heard a lot of people get very excited about it.  I’ve also heard a few ask whether this move makes sense for the company and whether we can expect to see any further kits from later eras.
