I chose to use a soldering iron instead of the recommended CA glue. This makes the assembly more difficult but the joints hold better... After all I needed to hone my soldering skills, Don't you?

The other tools I used were flush cut wire cutters, Heavy Duty Scissors, a sanding disc in my motor tool, thin solder, and long nose pliers.

I would recommend cleaning the parts while still on the sprue, if you plan to glue the kit together. This way paint will stick better.
