I know foam is lighter,but let,s face it,they are 1 crash aeroplanes.
If you are a relative beginner to 3d,i would go with something you can actually repair yourself after the inevitable "arrival".
Which is why I suggest the Hummer. EPP model, you vsn throw that around, bang it into the ground, do all the things you'd be scared of trying with an expensive full fuselage job.
