Chemistry-Molecular models

Select a compound and explain the advantages and disadvantages of using ball-an-stick, space-filling, and lewis structure to represent compound.

What I have so far:

The advantages for all the models are that you can see the shape of the atoms, but unlike the ball-and-stick and structural, the space filling model is unable to display the bonds between the elements. The space-filing model shows how the atoms fit together unlike the other two, though.
