Default NOS Sailplane Kits - Are they good models?

I recently became the owner of several NOS sailplane kits as well as some not so old kits. I fly sport RC, so I don't know much about sailplanes. I'm looking for a website that would give me an indication what these sailplanes are worth, since I am going to sell at least a few of them. Some may not even be classified properly as sailplanes; i.e., the Berkeley Customer Privateer.

Here they are, and if anyone would like to volunteer any information (value, quality, rarity, reputation, etc.) please feel free to comment:

Prophet 2 meter
Jetco Superflite Thermic "B"
Airtonics Aquila Grande (123")
Balsa USA Nomad (100")
Craft-Aire Butterflly (99")
Jetco Thermic 72
Legion Air 140
Craft-Air Sailaire (150")
Super Monterey (99")
Pierce Aero Paramount Prototype (156")
Balsa USA Breazy (99")
Hi-Flight RO-8 (78.8")
Sensoar 2 meter (78 1/2")
Top Flite Metrick 2 meter (72")
Berkeley Custom Privateer (114")

These are all kits, and all but the Breazy are in original boxes. Send me an email or private message with any information you may wish to pass on.

Thanks,

Harlan

Thanks, Joe! I've kind of been away from the airplanes for a couple of months, but ready to jump in again. I appreciated your comments regarding the planes.
