The MAX3000A and the PIC can be bought any place in the EU.

How about the new Zylin  CPU.

... That said ....
But i  can't do a FPGA board at home (multilayer).

That's why i think the idea of  using the STM32F4-Discovery board , 
or even an Arduino (both around $20).  
With a "Baseboard" that can be etched at home or ordered somewhere. 
Would  be a lot more interesting , for a normal hobbyist. 

A lot of the "nice  offers" from BatchPcb etc. is not optimal , for 
European nuts (im in  Denmark). 
Partly due to 25% VAT , but mostly the handling fee that the  Post/Mail is
allowed to charge for handling the VAT (in DK it's $25) + the  25% VAT.

So a solution where the parts could also be bought in EU ,  would be nice.
