Hi Jeff,

   There is no copy and paste capability for models in Chimera.  The 
simplest way to copy and paste everything is to save a session, then 
open it.  Chimera ask if you want to close the already open models and 
you say no.  This method of course only works if all your displayed 
models are included in Chimera session files.  You can also duplicate 
individual volume models in their current orientations with the volume 
dialog File / Duplicate menu entry.

   Once you duplicate the models use Model Panel to activate only the 
copied models so they can be moved as a group so they do not exactly 
overlay the original models.
