That mod101 kit was my first build. I know what you mean about the flow of the circuit. I didn’t feel like I learned much from it, but it fueled my desire to build my own gear. I am running that little amp through 2 4×10 cabs I built loaded with celestion 30’s. I built a few of their pedals as well. Also have built some of the BYOC pedals. They are a great group to work with as well.
