Unable to start instance of SQL 2008 - problems with model.mdf

After a hard shutdown of a server due to a power outage, one of the instances of SQL will no longer stay started. It starts, and then stops, with the following error in the SQL logs.

"SQL Server detected a logical consistency-based I/O error: incorrect checksum (expected: 0x0accf0b9; actual: 0xdac1d5cf). It occurred during a read of page (1:2) in database ID 3 at offset 0x00000000004000 in file 'd:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.PROLAW\MSSQL\DATA\model.mdf'.  Additional messages in the SQL Server error log or system event log may provide more detail. This is a severe error condition that threatens database integrity and must be corrected immediately. Complete a full database consistency check (DBCC CHECKDB). This error can be caused by many factors; for more information, see SQL Server Books Online.

I don't have a backup of model, but i have tried replacing the mdf and ldf files with backups many times to no avail."

I've tried the "-T 3608" switch in starting the service, but it still stops right away.  

I have no way of getting into the management studio to run dbcc checkdb.

Any suggestions?

Fixed it myself.  Noticed the model.mdf files in SBSMONITORING were the same size, so just copied that and the log file over. Database instance started right up.
