    probably not as much as you would think.old plans are mostly good for hanging fron the ceiling.if it was unbuilt in kit form there are collectors that would pay a good price.

    Like art, it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    If you put it on Fleecebay, it depends on how many guys decide they want it. With kits, I've found that there is a swap meet price and the on line auction price.

    Hi Dart;

    Greetings to you from the sunny and windy 'Valley of the Sun'.

    In answer to your question, and similar ones submitted to this Vintage Section almost every week is simple.......WHO knows for sure? I am a kit collector with almost 700 older/vintage/antique kits in my ever growing, eclectic collection. I prowl swap meets, model meets, etc., always on the lookout for something new and interesting, however, these days, and for the past 10>11years my best source for kits, [my bag], is eBay, and RCU herewith in the old days, [RCU prices are outrageous rite now, with most Sellers asking eBay+ prices].

    Now, here is what to do re your Sterling Cub: go over to eBay's Search Engine, submit the item you are interested in....Sterling J-3 Cub...., it will give you any that are up for auction, with time of sale price etc., if ther are none, just keep on checking in periodically, it will eventually show up......Someone put it up for auction: the Seller....Someone purchased it: the Buyer, at a said Price...the Value of the kit. Do this 4>5 times, average the #s and you will know pretty well what your kit is worth.

    I have purchased about 500 or so kits with eBay, a lesser # through RCU. Try my method, I think that you will like it, best regard from Glendale, Arizona,

    Joe Nagy.

    Two years ago I paid $86 for the Sterling J3 Kit, NIB on eBay. 54 inch wing span.
