tamiya carries some awesome tools as in nut drivers, allen wrenches, and scissors, as for a caliper, I don't think you really need it, but if you have to have one, you can get one from like Sears that is Digital and it should be ok, as for tools, definetly Hudy or Tamiya TRF

Lots of manufacters sell them. I bought the Dynamite tool set, 3 for $21 when I could have got that Integy one, 9 for $21, standard and metric.

I use the digital calipers from Harbor Freight. Cheap and nice though. Hako soldering iron from Fry's electronics, cheaper for the same iron.
