Hi Hernando,
The low-res surfaces are for efficiency, but you can force loading all  
of the atomic coordinates as follows:

After you make the Multiscale Model, in that dialog select "All"  
chains and then change the "Style" to anything other than "Surface" to  
force Chimera to load the atomic coordinates.

This was described with a few more details in previous posts:

I hope this helps,
