For long, straight cuts, use a razor saw. For others, you need to
/carefully/ cut with an exacto, never trying to cut entirely through the
part at once. If you can get away with the razor saw, do so...

Most of us advanced modelers generally avoid the Korean knockoffs as anything other than parts for kitbashes. Generally, the quality in these korean kits is terrible. Personally I avoid them except when looking for parts to Kitbash or if it's a knockoff of a kit that is impossible to find anymore.
