Sometimes, you will need to use/call models/classes dynamically if you only have its fully qualified name as a string. So for example if you have a record and you got its class|model name using get_class($record), and now you need to access this model using the name you have right now. then you can use the following snippet to do so.

$theBaseClassName = get_class($record);
$model = app("{$theBaseClassName}");
$model = app(get_class($record)); //Same as previous
//Now you can access different attributes from this class as follows:
$model->indexName; // IndexName property.
$model->getTable(); //Model Table

//Another way is as follows:
$baseModelName = 'Bill';
$modelName = "\\App\Models\\".$baseModelName; \\Note the use of double back slashes
$theModel = new $modelName();
