# Instance Properties

All instance properties start with the character $ to prevent them from colliding with the database column names.

# $modelClass

const modelClass = person.$modelClass;

Returns the class of the model instance. The return value is equal to this.constructor. This is mainly useful with typescript where the type is ModelClass<this> which is more useful than the Function type of this.constructor.

# Examples
const person = Person.fromJson({ id: 1 });
console.log(person.$modelClass === Person); // prints true
