Hi Rongon,
I would be happy with a Fender kind of tone, 20 watts with reverb and effect loops.
I could buy the kit and built it.
Would you also suggest books on guitar tube amps and companies selling kits. Thank you, much appreciated.

The effects loop will be the hard part, but there may be kits for it. I have never built any of the commercially available kits, so I don't know how good or bad any of them might be.

I am in the US, so I'm not familiar with kits available in Europe. I do know that Mojotone sells cabinets, chassis, and other parts for making reproduction Fender amplifiers.
Blackface Style Amplifier Kits -

The Deluxe Reverb is 20 watts, with reverb. I suppose you could add an effects loop. Personally, I don't see the point. It's more trouble than it's worth. I never used lots of effects. But then, Kurt Rosenwinkel does, and he gets amazing sounds out of them. Rumor has it that he's using a Fender Twin Reverb (big, heavy, 85 watts with dual 12" speakers). If that's so, then he doesn't use an effects loop, unless somebody modded his Twin with one.

Another place for gtr amp kits:
