LogonModel Question

I'm using MVC 4, and I have hacked the logon/account stuff a bit to implement the old forms login, but all of a sudden the LogonModel seems to be null, or rather the line
@Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.UserName, new { @class = "form-control notAsTall" })

Open in new window

is throwing a null exception.
Its made me question where the LogonModel was getting instantiated anyway as the controller (out-of-the-box) just returns View()

>> the controller (out-of-the-box) just returns View()

This means Model would be null inside the views. Normally there are two Actions of same name, with and without model as parameters. The one without model is used to present initial form.

What I've become curious about is where the LogOnModel is instantiated.
I see the other Action with two params, but I'm testing with another app I've got with an older scaffold/mvc framework and the param-less one is still instantiating the LogOnModel.
Is it instantiated in the pipeline before it reaches the controller?
