  I know of two papers that have used molecular modeling to study Ig V

Tomiyama Y, Brojer E, Ruggeri ZM et al. A molecular model of RGD ligands.
Antibody D gene segments that direct specificity for the integrin
alphaIIb-beta3. JBC 1992;267:18085-18092.

Hughes-Jones NC, Bye JM, Beale D and Coadwell J. Nucleotide sequences and
three-dimensional modelling of the VH and VL domains of two human
monoclonal antibodies specific for the D antigen of the human
Rh-blood-group system. Biochem J 1990;268:135-140.
