Do not use electrolytic caps, you need good tantalum ones.
I use the microphone parts capsules and they sound more than adequate.
The transformer is pretty important, 10:1 I think I used if memory serves.
These are nice and small and work well


The actual headbasket is quite important, I made my bodies from brass, wasn't all that difficult, but I did try in a normal style head basket and I didn't like the sound.

I got the socket off ebay and most of the other bits, you'll just have to be resourceful and do a lot of searching.

Good luck.
I personally like the Ami Tab C12a kit 🤔

Read the 6 pages of this thread again.
I guess people did not understand when I posted to look at the power supply.
