Hello and welcome!
I would not necessarily assume that a short bus is going to be quicker than a long bus. It's not like you start at the front and build a foot a week or anything. Build time is a product of the interaction of a bunch of factors. Some of the major ones include: how much time you got? How much money? Can you work on it right at your house? And the biggie: how much complexity do you want?
You gotta have a plan. If you don't have a plan, you have no way to change your plan.
