33, ranging from 1:600 to 1:200. I have four additional broken planes:
Herpa United 772 N/C (nosewheel)
SMA NWA DC-9 3-Pack (-41 nosewheel, -32 elevator moves, and yes, that's a problem)
I also have four paper models I made from Airigami (one of which is the Airport '79 Concorde custom-made by me, which is the only one that actually flies if you add some weight on the nose, such as a paper clip)
So, if you want to include the broken pieces of crap and the paper models, 41. Without the broken crap but with the paper models, 37. Ditch the paper lightweights, and it's 33.

I was curious, so I counted to get an exact number. I have 134 of the little die-cast scale models, ranging from an SR-71 to a 747 to Concorde. I have 3 plastic snap-fit 1:400 models (OA735, TW763, TW741). And, lastly, I have two big 1:120 scale birds (LX332 and BA Concorde).

Alaska, you have given me some inspiration man! All those models in different scales too! Well done mate! I also like the creative use of the model boxes to build terminals and hangars.
As for me, I have about 35 1:400 models of Dragon, Gemini and other makers plus 1 1:500 MH 777 bought on-board in 2003. My larger-scale models include 6 from BW, 3 from First Choice Airways, 1 from Futura and an old one from KL - as you may have guessed all of these were on-board purchases.

I have 46 x 1:400 scale models from Aeroclassics, Gemini Jets, Dragon Wings, Sovereign, Big Bird etc. It is great now that we are starting to see a lot of classic British aircraft available such as the Trident, Comet, VC-10 etc. I'm just waiting for some nice BAC 1-11s but I'm sure Aeroclassics or Gemini will surprise me with something!
I also have a couple of large, custom-made models:
British Midland B737-200
Gill Air Shorts 330
I've got a load of 1:200 scale Wooster, Long Prosper etc stored back home - many of them from the 1980s / early 90s. My favourites for nostalgia would be my Orion and Britannia B737-200s.
