    Would there be much difference in techniques?

    The parts are just smaller.

    Ninety percent of all techniques and principles are exactly the same for all scales.

    Our suppliers are another can of worms, though.

    No. If you can solder Copper then you can solder Brass or Phosphor Bronze, but they conduct and dissipate heat at slightly different rates.
    The technique, solder and flux can be the same for all.

    @bc6, are you scratch building, kit bashing, repairing or building the model?

    A friend gave me a copy of the old PBL "The art of soldering" video. It's out of stock now but I can send you a drop box link to a ripped copy of it if you are interested. Admins, if this isn't ok let me know. I realize the DVD is a commercial product but you can't get them anymore.
