The large samples of multi-year observations posed an enormous data analysis challenge that has only recently been surmounted. Asteroseismic modeling has become more sophisticated over time, with better methods gradually developing alongside the extended observations and improved data analysis techniques. We apply the latest version of the Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP) to the full-length Kepler data sets for 57 stars, comprising planetary hosts, binaries, solar-analogs, active stars, and for validation purposes, the Sun. From an analysis of the derived stellar properties for the full sample, we identify a variation of the mixing-length parameter with atmospheric properties. We also derive a linear relation between the stellar age and a characteristic frequency separation ratio. In addition, we find that the empirical correction for surface effects suggested by Kjeldsen and coworkers is adequate for solar-type stars that are not much hotter (Teff≲6200K) or significantly more evolved (logg≳4.2, <Δν> ≳80uHz80) than the Sun. Precise parallaxes from the Gaia mission and future observations from TESS and PLATO promise to improve the reliability of stellar properties derived from asteroseismology. Description: This catalogue contains the observed and modelled stellar parameters of 57 Kepler stars and the Sun analysed using the Asteroseismic Modeling Portal (AMP, The table provides the combined data from Tables A.1, A.2, and A.3: the derived mean stellar parameters, the reference models, and complementary photometric and spectroscopic quantities from the literature used in this paper. The derived mean model parameters and uncertainties (Table A.3) are radius, mass, age, luminosity, effective temperature, surface gravity, metallicity, parallax and rotational velocity. The latter is derived using the rotation period from the literature and radius from this work. The reference model parameters (Table A.2) are radius, mass, age, initial metallicity Zi and helium Yi mass fraction, mixing-length parameter alpha, ratio of current central hydrogen to initial hydrogen mass fraction, Xc/Xi, the a0 parameter in Eq.7, and the normalised chi-squared values for the r01, r02 and spectroscopic data. The complementary data from Table A.1 are the spectroscopic effective temperatures and metallicities, the photometric 2MASS Ks magnitude, the extinction AKs in Ks band derived in this work, the rotational velocities from the literature, and references to the spectroscopic data and rotational velocities.
