I've been using balsa because it is all that seems to be available in my area. Make more than my share of mistakes too but I just start over again after gluing a small slab of balsa over the offending area. I also like to brush on Tamiya grey putty thinned with methyl hydrate as filler. It fills and sands very easily. A coat of primer gives it a slightly harder finish although the body won't withstand too many crashes.

As far as tools go, I just use small box cutters and bits of sandpaper to shape the body. There is one rule of thumb: If I can do it...a monkey can do it.
