I'm also looking into the kit end of qrp. Im not after a K-3 but want to build those tuna kits and the like for the thrill of it if nothing else.

For QRP kits, look at ...

You can also google NB6M paddle, but that's primarily a single lever paddle.  I recently built both a single lever and dual lever paddles from PC board stock, using the NB6M design as a guide.  They both turned out just fine, and they're a ton of fun to use.  I was mostly a single paddle guy, but now I prefer the dual lever.
