I'll know in a month. (the lede folk got it doing builds may 27th)
It's a "16 VCPU N1-standard-16" instance. Estimate appears to be about

The 4 cpu box that I am still contributing to the openwrt project runs
me about 250/month. I mentally have just taken what I get from

and sent it that way. I've had offers from various places to cover the
cost of the build system, but I have not got around to pursuing them
yet, I felt it was saner to help kickstart the lede effort any way I
could, first.
