Hi XBL,
Maybe the confusing part is the word "model."  In Chimera, we just use that word to mean a structure with atomic coordinates, which could be from experiments (crystallography, NMR, etc. such as entries in the Protein Data Bank) or calculations (protein structure prediction, etc.). Essentially each structure file you open becomes one model:
<http://hmg.oxfordjournals.org/content/23/4/949.long>

I was guessing that your two structures are "models" from the Chimera point of view.  If not, and I still didn't answer your question, feel free to write back.
I hope this helps,
Elaine
