howto populate database with model data?

You want 40 instances of 5 different types of objects, right?

[Model1,Model2,Model3,Model4,Model5].each do |model|
  0.upto(40) { model.create(:whatever => 3) }
end

Is this what you're looking for?

You can load your test fixtures into the db using rake db:fixtures:load.
