I'm glad you are so close to the museum. I gave my collection to the Civil Air Patrol over 40 years ago, and they gave much of it to the museum, so it seems we helped stock it!
My best effort was Alb D.Va 2299 as flown by Bruno Loerzer with Jasta 26; with hand painted five color camo top & bottom wings.
When last seen (over ten years ago) it was in a display case next to a Blue Max and near the Dr.I replica.
If you get a chance I'd like to know it it's still there, and I would really like to have a photo to post here.

Trying to get caught up on digests, sorry I did not
know you were going to the museum ahead of time, I could have met you there
since it is about 15 minutes from my house. and I'm not too shy to admit that
about half of the fokker models and the figures were done by myself, about 15
years ago... before I had a digital camera unfortunately! I also hope you
enjoyed the Lafayette Escadrille exhibit which has some more of the models done
by my model club, wings & Wheels modelers and my old 1/24 scale Nieuport 17
in Lufbery's markings.
Glad you had a pleasant trip.
