Since delegation inheritance does not inherits methods how would I call a method from the model I have inherited from in my new model?

I think you got little confused here,

Delegation Inheritance will inherit methods too.

you just need to call it using self.METHOD_NAME

Best example is mail.thread object which would have been inherited in almost the main objects, So if you notice method message_post is actually defined in mail.thread, while its child class can simply call the method the way it calls its own method
