how to figure out the values of the kits

I am not a collector. I just have a few car model kits , which were given as gifts. I do not know their prices. From the popular list of model kits on ebay I can see that some of the kits are very expensive.

Manufacturer, production and desirability. There are some kits out there that were low-production but they were that way because few wanted them then, or now. Also bear in mind the usual 3 year model rotation of the real things. If there was a '63, '64 & '65 based on the same body with styling changes to the grilles and taillights, it's a good bet that the first two model years will be worth more as kits because the manufacturer updated the moulds each year making the first two eternally out-of-production. For manufacturers, JoHan is a good bet since most of the moulds have been damaged or mislaid.
