Here are a pic of a VK200 wideband choke and a table of transistors that you can stick into this amplifier. Emitter leads of the power transistor have to be kept at minimum (every single additional millimeter means less gain and less output power). Use large (appropriate) heat sinks. Do not strain transistors too much when you mount them, ceramics can break. If you can't max the amp with shown trimmer caps, use bigger values or add 10-22pF in parallel. Some coils might need a winding more in some cases. Need printed circuit board for this? See the table below to order the PCB...
