Try the Sig Astro Hog for your 61. If you're really wanting a building experience, this should do it for you as there's lots of carving, sanding, etc, but the instructions and plans are pretty straight-forward.

Some kit makers have the manual online. Here are the ones I could find easily. By looking at the manual you can get some impression of the complexity of the build.

Top Flite

SIG manuals are not online. I have seen the Somethin Extra recommended as a good first build.
