I have ordered the kit and am awaiting delivery. whilst I wait I was reading the instructions to construct the kit. I have one question why do the transistors have to be mounted as close as possible to the board surface ?

 My soldering skills are basic and I would rather have the extra length to allow me to attach a set of needle nose pliers to heat sink the transistors whilst I solder. If I keep the transistors at the end of their legs would this impact the circuit ?

The kit will work just fine, having them close to the board gives it a more clean look as well as lowering the chance of something coming into contact with the leads.
