I'm from the UK and would like to know if this build is worth doing. I have bought the first issue. Should I subscribe or not?

Seriously - only you know the answer to that.

Any kit is worth buying if you want it.
If you aren't that keen, don't buy it.

I don`t think so as it usually takes about a week to arrive when it ships from the warehouseBigGrin

I do want to do it, just wanted to check other people's experiences regarding quality, build issues or anything else before I committed.

Have a look at the official build, done by Steve Humphries. It will give you a really good idea of how it goes together.

Best,
