We consider in this paper the general problem of construction and classification of normal, i.e. without spurious invariants, discrete velocity models (DVMs) of the classical (elastic) Boltzmann equation. We explain in detail how this problem can be solved and present a complete classification of (i.e. we present all distinct) normal plane DVMs with relatively small number $n$ of velocities ($n\leq 10$). Some results for models with larger number of velocities are also presented.
