Frankly, for the sort of molecules you're likely to come across in
A-level biology you shouldn't need to construct models.  Most common
biological small molecules have already been solved, along with most of
the common globular proteins (don't even bother looking for
transmembrane proteins though!).

A scout around some of the larger structure databases should get you all
the molecules you need.

Protein Database (contains all the released protein structures);
	http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/
	http://pdb-browsers.ebi.ac.uk//index.shtml

Small molecule databases
	http://triton.ps.toyaku.ac.jp/~dobashi/database/indexe.html
	http://alpha2.bmc.uu.se/hicup/
	http://www.ibc.wustl.edu/moirai/klotho/compound_list.html

I think you should find most of what you want in one of those.
