This list of manufacturers and suppliers of amateur radio kits does not pretend to "ever" be complete!
I consider the following as worthy of mention, and worthy of the time you will devote to building them.

The "Sienna" HF Receiver/Transceiver Kit is modular. This XCVR kit offers features not found on any other XCVR kit or even commercially built units. IMHO, definitely worth looking into. They also offer the "Sedona" Station Accessory/SDR Kit.

The video demos by young Josh, VK2FJDX, are a pure delight! (The video dates back to October 2009. Josh is older now! ;)
Below is a list of manufacturers and suppliers of QRP radio kits that I find to be worthy of note. Even if some are somewhat sophisticated projects, most are small, easy to assemble QRP (low power transmitter output) kits.
The following resources are presented in no particular order, although the more "complex" ones (IMHO) tend to "percolate" to the top.
Quoting from the QRP Labs website:
The QCX+ "is a 5W, single-band, high performance CW transceiver kit with WSPR beacon, and built-in alignment/test equipment. It is available for 80, 60, 40, 30, 20 or 17m bands." I sports a long list of features! They also offer the smaller sized QCX-mini.
HF Signals Electronics Pvt. Ltd
The new µBITX v6 is a general coverage, 3-30 MHz, (up to) 10 watts HF SSB/CW transceiver kit. It features digital tuning (touch screen), dual VFOs, RIT, CW Keyer and more. This kit requires NO soldering. The full kit includes a microphone, a cabinet and all the parts required to make the transceiver ready to use. An exceptional value for the price. Users meet in an active forum at https://groups.io/g/bitx20. They also offer the BITX40, a 40 meter monobander.
