Depending on where you shop for Gunpla, is it cheaper or more expensive to order spare parts than buying a whole kit to acquire those parts?

It really depends on where you go for parts, how many parts you need, and how expensive is the kit itself? If you only need a few parts, you don't want to have to buy an entire runner like HLJ makes you do. However, if you need a tone of parts from a single runner, that may be easier. They charge a percentage of the price of the kit depending on the percentage of the kit you want.

Gundam Store and More charges $2.50 per part and then $5 for each weapon (sword, gun, etc), plus $2.95 for shipping... Buying 4 or 5 parts for a high grade kit, you're better off buying a new kit and keep extra parts for whatever. However, $15 total for a few parts for that MG The O you messed up because you used the wrong thinner and now the leg armor is melting vs shelling out $80 for a whole new one, much better deal. But GSAM will only sell parts from a kit on their "parts list" unless there are enough requests for them to dig into a new kit.

I'm not sure how GG Infinite does their parts orders, but I hear they can get them straight from Bandai. They might be your best bet, if that's the case.
