Based on your generalized info, more than 20 years in the business and recent parallel if not similar work done, I’d charge between $100 and $200 per hour for a turnkey product.

…there’s a long list of probable and potential charges, and it has nothing to do with “nickle and diming” people. The ONLY way to sustain a “profitable” businesss is to cover your actual costs, materials and time, and get paid what your time is actually worth. Not always what the client will bear or what they’re willing to pay.
