Correct spelling, explanation: the origins of this word and its spelling are Latin and French (fr. modelle). The correct form model is thus spelled according to these original forms from older languages.
Modle, which may be mistaken because of pronunciation, is wrong.

3. verb, to create a shape from something; to work as a model
Do you like this clay statue? It’s the first one I’ve ever modelled.
I was modelling a little bit when I was a teenager but never got a serious gig.
Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect because its spelling doesn’t go with original forms from Latin, French or Italian (modulus, modelle, modello); the correct form in English is model.
Modle may be mistaken though because of similar pronunciation to such words as bottle, spelled with le. However here model is the correct form.
