    What causes a model to show up fine in hammer, but be totally non-existent in game? The model is in my tf/models/ folder.

    You are using the correct entity? Might need to use prop_dynamic instead of prop_static, or vice versa.

    Also check the fading distance hasn't been set too low- that can happen when moving ents about with the "helpers" enabled.

    Thanks, the problem was that it needed to be prop_dynamic. Funny because it says "static prop" in the .qc ....

    When you've got models dissapearing like this there is often an error in the console or in the compile log that tells you, I'm not sure if its an error that interlopers picks up though so you may have to actually read it, its not that hard to find though as the .bsp bit is only about 10-20 lines (provided you don't have a leak that is)
