Have to replace a 50 yr old backyard bib and dont know if it screws out of the faucet was originally soldered on the the 1/2 " tube

What is the best way to approach this ?

Below is pic of exterior view. The inside view is just the tube going into a wood sill board.
I haven't done any soldering in 20 years and I'm wondering if there's now an easier way of doing this project.

should I just cut a 12" length of the existing copper supply tube and solder a new 12" assembly (faucet & soldered 12" replacement and sliding i through the existing exterior hole and then soldering them with a copper union?

Or is there an easier way to join copper these days (ferruled Compression fittings etc
