I usually order 6-10 at a time. When it all comes down, it's cheaper i you
order in mass. I have the rates stored on my other system or I'd tell you
for certain. Also, don't forget that UPS includes insurance for the price
as well. (Not that others don't.) It takes me an average of 4 days from
the day it leaves there to receive my packages.

I hit them in the cons, and they vary greatly there as well. I just
attended Origins last weekend, and there was 3 dealers with kits. One only
had old kits and wanted $20+ for each, 1/144 scale. Another had a few Wing
kits at $25 each same scale. The other listed them about $52 for MG Super
Gundam, GP02, ZZ, $45 Zeta, $30 various GMs. At least they would haggle
down a tad. Got the Zeta for $40 there.
