We have calculated a grid of solar abundance model atmospheres and grids with enhanced metallicities as well as reduced metallicities, . The models span a range of and . These models were originally intended to be used for low mass stellar evolution models (Baraffe et al, in preparation) and thus assume a mass of for the stars. In the parameter range (mainly ) considered here, the synthetic spectra can also be applied to other masses. Most of the basic results have been described in , so we are concentrating here on comparison with the NG-giant models.
