Hello J.R.,
I'm not sure about want you intend to do. Do want to adapt a model to
calculate contours of the data or do you simply want to display a
continous (raster)image? the question is rather do you want to use
vector data or raster data. If you like to gain a raster image from the
points you might want to use grass(plugin) and convert the point data to
raster. If you want to derive contour lines or areas you can use the
contour plugin as Micha Silver proposed already. Otherwise with grass
you can apply even more complex models, depending on the complexity of
your data the method of deriving contours and/or the quality and scale
of your data.

cheers

Stefan
