A few month ago I decided to build a Sta Level compressor with the pcb from drip electronics. The case is from collectivecases.com
It thought I'd get the Sta Level micro pcb (just the main circuit without power supply), but they weren't available any more and replaced by the full pcb.
The pcb is so big that you really don't have a choice of where you put it in the case.... and unfortunately you are forced to make some very impractical wireing (concerning mains voltage etc.) and deal with small clearances etc.
But it can be done
The fontpanel is very nice. I used a Simpson meter and some very authentic looking knobs
You can see that the pcb forces you to have parts of the power supply (HT choke etc..) near the frontpanel, which I don't really like
The output pad is not part of the main pcb and soldered to a small piece of pcb near to the xlr sockets

Here's the expensive 6386 tube from JJ. It comes in a little foam box ( just like the jewels for your girlfriend
I tried to seperate the mains wires to the power switch as best as possible. In addition I covered the wires with some extra shielding tube.
