You'll need to tie fishing line around 3 points on the plane (e.g., nose, tail, and/or wings) and secure them to hook(s) on the ceiling.  Using more than 1 hook will keep the plane from moving much due to drafts in the room.  A slipknot should make it easy to adjust the lengths and allow you to take the plane down easily for dusting.

please message me back. But how would I hang Lego Star wars vehicles from the ceiling. (Use fishing line) but would I have to super glue the vehicle together first?

Since they've been mentioned before, how about some of those clever 3M fixings, otherwise I'm totally with Angry' on this.

I used to use blue tac on the bottom of my Airfix planes as the tops always looked better than the bottoms, so my planed flew upside-down.

When I used to make Airfix kits, my father strung a length of "invisible" sewing thread from corner to corner of my bedroom (pinned to the picture rail).

Each model was then hung from a short length of the same thread, tied to the long section.
