[Chimera-users] Surface function question

I am modeling a rotavirus VP7 protein using Chimera (PDB 3fmg), and I’m having trouble with the surface function.  This protein is modeled with a monoclonal antibody conjugated to it, which I am able to hide.  But when I show the surface for just the VP7 protein, there are gaps in the surface.  The gaps appear to be in the areas where the VP7 protein comes into contact with the antibody.  Is there a way to fill in these gaps?  I’ve seen other publications that have used this protein (same PDB number), but the surface is complete.  If you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it.  Thanks!
