[Chimera-users] Coloring higher ordered structures

I’m working with a rotavirus capsid structure and I’d like to highlight individual residues on it if possible.  I’m using PDB #3IYU which I split into individual chains, and used the multiscale model function to create the capsid structure.  I’m able to color different surfaces, but it applies the color to each spot where the chain is on the entire capsid, rather than just one subunit.  I’d like to recreate the kind of figure from a paper by Zeller et al (2012), attached below.  Additionally, is it possible to color individual residues on a capsid structure? 

Thanks in advance!
