Count me in. All construction projects should be encouraged. It's almost thirty years since I made something interesting, the standards converter. Although if you think about, I rebuilt it over the winter months. December 2012 to January this year.
There was a two valve FM super regenerative set in PW from 1954 that I built a few years ago. It used two Acorn valves and was quite impressive. It was super sensitive and would lock onto the station as well, audio quality was good and easy to build, with a low component count.

An OA72? crystal diode is the detector. the set has no IF amplifier stage so I've no idea what the performance would be like.

I can only support use of old parts in "one off" ventures. For multiple builds new parts or at least very very common parts have to be used.
