Recomendations for a tube amp DIY kit

I am thinking of (trying) to build a tube amp (no more than 30W) as my next project. I have seen several DIY kits on line for tube amps (i.e. JTM45, Bluesbrakers, Fender Twins etc...) but really don't have any clue which are the good kits out there.
I have not really decided exactly what amp kit I want to build, but my basic needs so far are:
1) I'll make it a 2x12 Combo
2) I'll be using two Greenbacks that I have allready.
3) I'll build the cab myself, no need to buy anything from a kit builder, unless I find something nice and cheap.
4) I'll basically need one nice clean sounding channel, my Nova System will take care of the rest. If the kit has reberb options or switchable channels it would be a bonus.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!!!

This is a good site: http://turretboards.com/
Maybe a Fender clone is what your looking for.

Warning: Building amps can become addictive!
