I have two Ender 2 printers, I purchased for $175.00 each, from 3Dprintersonlinestore.com These were kits that I assembled and aligned in about 2 hours. I built enclosures for both of them with 3/4 styrofoam sheeting for about $8.00. I have printed 1000s of model rocket parts with them and have even modified one for less than $20 to have a longer z-axis (400mm). As per Chris Taylor of Todays 3D print channel (T3DP) on YouTube the Ender 3 is a much better printer kit and the newer Ender 5 is slightly better than the Ender 3. You can purchase the Ender 3s for around $200 and the Ender 5s for just over $300.
