Limit on Number of ModelBuilder Inputs

Hi everyone,

I have written a model in ModelBuilder which works great and does exactly what I need it to but it will only accept 50 input shapefiles. I need it to accept thousands if possible. Is there any way to increase the number of inputs a model will accept?
I'm relatively new to ArcGIS and largely self taught so I'm hoping there is a simple answer that I just don't know about.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
