The VZ24 is a great action for building a custom on the 98 Mauser platform - I have four of them myself (6.5-06AI, 338WM, 22-250Rem, and one bare action waiting on a 22-6mm barrel)
I built the 22-250 myself, and just finished a 7X57 on a small-ring Kar98a action. Be careful - it gets addictive!
The VZ24 is a standard large-ring 98 action so you'll have no problems going forward with your project. Aftermarket stocks, triggers, safeties, and bottom metal are all readily available, as are prethreaded, short-chambered barrels.
As another poster mentioned, they'll require some work to turn into a sporter. The bolt handle will either need to be forged down or replaced (preferred) to clear the scope objective, and the action will need to be drilled and tapped. Be sure that the front ring is D&T'd in the proper location - Kimber ruined a lot of actions by drilling too far back...Many builders will also true the primary and secondary torque shoulders, lap the lugs in, and lap the bolt face (if needed).
For your first build, I'd recommend also getting Jerry Kuhnhausen's book on Mausers - it'll help identify some common issues/pitfalls and also does a great job of walking you through the steps involved in sporterizing one of these fine old actions.
Have fun with your build!
