The main difference between the 346 and the 34 is the 346 has a sugarscoop stern and superceded the 34 so will be younger. Otherwise the layout below is almost identical. Both designs were built by Marine Projects. (see a link to my example below)

The Excel is the youngest with a similar layout below but built by Prout and with a different shape hull/superstructure. eg. https://www.devalk.nl/en/yachtbrokerage/23144/MOODY-34-EXCEL.html

If your preference is a 346, mine is currently for sale, details here https://www.moodyowners.info/threads/for-sale-1989-moody-346-bilge-keel.16177/ I will be pleased to give you a viewing. tel. 07786318498
