i have done tags for previous scenery models,but now after creating my models and physics folders iam supposed to save a file in the models folder called .jms the problem is i have no model exporter listed in the save type as.

Hey Ally, I am hoping you needed this info for Halo 2 Vista scenery items. Anytime you want to make a model to be used in Vista though, you will want to flip all normals before exporting the jms file. You need to do this because the Halo 1 system draws geometry in a different direction than Halo 2. All Halo 1 models if you were able to import directly into Halo 2 would, all be reversed. So, when you flip them ahead of time, you dont have to try and make GBXModel upgrader tool, try to flip them for you, which btw only works about 0.00000001% of the time.
