We develop a quiet Sun background model to be used for the numerical simulation of solar oscillations and explore the properties of this model using the three-dimensional Semi-spectral Linear MHD (SLiM) code. We first suggest criteria for defining a convectively stable, but solar-like, background model. A first step in the development of such a solar-like model is presented and we demonstrate that it meets the first of the criteria by comparing the power spectrum of the simulation with SoHO/MDI observations.
