I don't know if the mosfet based assembly process will ever be truly accessible to a complete novice. The soldering isn't trivial, because it's so unforgiving of any errors. 50 amps going through each mosfet tends to show where the weak links are. A predrilled baseplate, wave soldered control board, and igbts seems to be the most foolproof approach.
