Yes, it would be an excellent model. You've got to be careful over gravity, which displaces the equilibrium position below the point at which the bungee starts to stretch, but I doubt if this will cause too many problems for you.

And – not something to worry about yet – the bungee won't obey Hooke's law perfectly.
