The complex problem of a collisionally pumped Ne-like geranium laser is examined through several detailed models. The central model is EHYBRID; a 1 1/2D fluid code which self consistently treats the plasma expansion with the atomic physics of the Ne-like ion for 124 excited levels through a collisional radiative treatment. The output of EHYBRID is used as data for ray-tracing and saturation codes which generate experimental observables. A detailed description of the models is given.
