You are certainly not alone as very many members on this wonderful site built (and inevitably crashed!) countless aircraft in the past.
About 10 years back I wrongly thought that model boats would prove less of a challenge. However, I quickly found they are even more fun to build and sail than fragile aircraft - - with a far superior life expectancy! As a further bonus, I stopped losing my hair as soon as I made the switch.
As others have said, a puffer is an excellent first model; and like the real thing can be built with all kinds of atmospheric bits and pieces on it's deck.
I would, however, suggest not building one much over 24 inches long. This is as the beamy hull will lead to an extremely heavy model (without removable ballast) in a larger size.
Welcome and with very best wishes.
