I don't know of a way to specify colors before making the models. You would make the Multiscale Models surfaces and then:
(1) select the chains, Ctrl-click and Shift-Ctrl-click with the mouse, and/or using the top section of the Multiscale Models dialog (the buttons next to "Select chains" and "Extend")
(2) when the desired set of chains is selected, either use the main Chimera menu "Actions… Color", or in the middle section of the Multiscale Models dialog ("Act on selected chains") click the square color well and use the Color Editor to change the color
I hope this helps,
