Measuring and Cutting Styrene Tube

This may seem like a simple question, but I am looking for a precise cut. I have a 3/8" styrene tube that I need to quarter into a 90 degree curve for a curved hull plate conversion. So, what is the best means to accurately measure the cut line?-- I foresee as a cut line down the length of the tube (and how to ensure straight). Also, how to ensure that the angle is a 90 degree angle.

If there are any recommended tools for making these cuts, any insight into those would be great.

Thanks in advance for any guidance/recommendations.
