There are a lot of reasons why you should not do this. But nevertheless it might be useful in certain situations.

If your database does not change and you want to use validators etc you better use inspectdb from django-admin.py

#Put this in yourproject/yourtestapp/models.py

from django.core.management import inspectdb

code = "\n".join(inspectdb())
code = code.replace("    class Meta:", "    class Admin: pass\n    class Meta:")
exec code in globals()
