Have you looked at the pre-painted / built desktop wood models? I've seen Thuds and Starfighters for sale from several sources in a variety of paint schemes.

My experience with giving people typical injection molded built models, is that they don't last very long. Everybody likes to touch and grab models, "to get a better look at it". Before long landing gears are snapped off, drop tanks and ordanance soon follow.
