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).

I have a lot, 89. All of them are Dragon Wings 1:400, except for 6 which are 1:200. I was wondering if there was anything special that you might be able to show them. How do you store them?

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.

Keep on collectin'...

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

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.

I used to have quite a few Herpa 1:500 models, but I sold them all.

Right now I've only got 4 models:

KL MD11
WD B747
CP DC10
AC A319 (in TCA colours)

Don't know what scales they are though.

I've only got two ready made models myself, this is because I only buy models of the exact aircraft I fly on;

Air China A340-313X B-2385
Atlantic Airways BAe146-200 OY-RCA

I do though have a few kits of L1011s, DC10s and other various Boeings and busses which are all waiting to be painted - I just never seem to get around to doing it
