Hi Hernando,
Commands use "specifications" which for whole models are the model numbers (also shown in the Model Panel), for example:

fitmap #0 #1

...if the pdb structure is model 0 and the density map is model 1.   There are also lots of options you could include after the model numbers, see

I hope this helps,
