This is really nice looking, detailed little model. It ends up measuring around 3 inches when assembled. While the model is supposed to be assembled without glue, you will need needle nosed pliers (to twist the connectors into place), clippers (to remove the model parts from the sprue) and a knife/metal ruler (to guide the metal as you fold parts of the model).
The kit is easy enough to assemble if you have experience, but is a little bit fidgety. I also found I needed to superglue the parts in place, as it felt a little rattly without the glue. In all, it's a neat little kit.
