Create the MVIEW and then double-click inside of it to activate it (your cursor should now be inside of the view) and then ZOOM EXTENTS and you should see your model.


After that, (still inside the MVIEW viewport) zoom in on the area you want to detail in the MVIEW.  then double-click outside the viewport to deactivate it (the mview,that is) and select the mview border and set the scalefactor in the properties panel.
