Hi David,
Sorry, multi-chain comparative modelling cannot be done via the Chimera-Modeller interface:

You would have to use Modeller directly to access functions such as multi-chain modeling that are not available via the Chimera graphical interface..

One could model a monomer and then open two copies of the model and superimpose them onto the monomers of a template dimer (or apply a known symmetry), but that would not necessarily exclude bad interactions between the copies.
