Certainly - that is straightforward, and in fact Modeller will do it
automatically. Just build a homology model using your existing model as
a template (the alignment will be simply 1:1 since the sequences are the
same). Use the regular modeling script at

If you want to keep the original conformation of part of the system, use
the script at http://salilab.org/modeller/9v6/manual/node23.html instead.

You can also use the same technique to fill in entire missing
*residues*; see http://salilab.org/modeller/wiki/Missing%20residues for
an example.
