shipping by weight + options for 1st, 2nd, Recorded and International help

Hi. there I have a new project. Would like to know the best workflow:

Delivery based on weight tiers....then on the checkout page customer would choose:

2nd Class Delivery
1st Class Delivery
Recorded Delivery
International (Europe)
Rest of the World

The client would like the option to update the delivery pricing in their Admin.

Here are the weight tiers:

2nd Class postage tiers (UK)
0 - 99g = £1.20
100 - 750g = £2.30
751 - 1000g = £3.50

1st Class postage tiers (UK)
0 - 99g = £1.60
100 - 750g = £2.75
751 - 1000g = £4.30

After 1000g Royal Mail will only send 1st class :-
1001 - 1250g = £5.60
1251 - 1500g = £6.50
1501 - 1750g = £7.40
1751 - 2000g = £8.30
2001 - 4000g = £10.30

Recorded delivery postage tiers (UK)

0 - 750g = £3.75
751 - 2000g = £5.30
2001 - 4000g = £8.80
4001 - 6000g = £12.30
6001 - 8000g = £15.80
8001 - 10,000g = £18.80
10,001 - 20,000g = £21.90

International postage tiers

Europe

0 - 99g = £2.90
100 - 200g = £3.20
201 - 300g = £3.70
301 - 400g = £4.30
401 - 600g = £5.50
700 - 900g = £7.30
901 - 1100g = £8.50
1101 - 1500g = £10.90
1501 - 2000g = £14.00

Rest of the World

0 - 99g = £3.50
100 - 200g = £4.70
201 - 300g = £5.80
301 - 400g = £7.00
401 - 600g = £9.60
700 - 900g = £13.40
901 - 1100g = £16.00
1101 - 1500g = £21.00
1501 - 2000g = £28.00

European and International customers can only be offered those postage tiers and UK customers can be offered 1st Class Royal Mail, 2nd Class Royal Mail and Recorded Delivery

So from the above information how would i go about this?

is there a way on the checkout page to have the delivery options displayed in a simple radio button selection then in () display the total-weight cost for that particular delivery option:

eg.

if the total weight was 600g for the cart the delivery options would display:

2nd Class Delivery (£2.30)
1st Class Delivery (£2.75)
Recorded Delivery (3.75)
International (£5.50)
Rest of the World (£9.60)

the above pricing is taken from the price list above for all weight variations.

if this isnt possible, then what would be the best work flow for this type of delivery pricing structure?

total regards

Chris
