If I remember this correctly, this should be

from .models import Article

The . in .models tells Python to look into the same directory the file is in. The models part tells it to look for the file called "models." Then, it imports "Article" from that file. You don't need to use models.Article to reference it, just Article in this scenario.

Yeaup, did the trick. Thanks!
