    It depends what you mean!

    Your first sentence means "Are you a model?" (like Kate Moss)
    Your second sentence could mean either "Do you like being a model?" or "Do you like making models?" (ie model cars, aeroplanes etc). If I heard that question, I would assume you meant the second definition.

    Note you have used the AmE spelling of "modeling". For information, in BrE, it is spelt "modelling".
