MODEL INDIRECT or MODEL CONSTRAINT?

I want to examine a SEM model where X is hypothesized to influence Y through multiple indirect pathways that involve multiple mediators. Specifically, it is hypothesized that:
How do I specify a model to examine all the specific indirect effects and total indirect effects of X on Y? Are the following commands correct?
Y IND M1 X;
Y IND M2 X;
Y IND M1 M3 X;
Y IND M2 M3 X;
Y IND M1 M2 M3 X;
Y IND X;
Or should I use MODEL CONSTRAINT instead?
NEW(XM1Y XM2Y XM1M3Y XM2MM3Y XM1M2M3Y);
XM1Y = XM1 * M1Y;
XM2Y = XM2 * M2Y;
XM1M3Y = XM1 * M1M3 * M3Y;
XM2M3Y = XM2 * M2M3 * M3Y;
XM1M2M3Y = XM1 * M1M2 * M2M3 * M3Y;
How do I obtain total indirect effects of X on Y if I use MODEL CONSTRAINT?

If you say
y IND x;
you will obtain tests for all indirect effects from x to y.
If this is not available, I need to know more about the scales of your variables.

Thank you very much! I think this will work.
