Incoming Loan from Dr. Roberts

In 1989, Dr. David Roberts loaned two models to the National Model Aviation Museum.  The models, a Stuka Ju-87 and a Mitsubishi A6M Zero, are both well-built, detailed, static scale models, most likely built from Guillow’s kits.  Due to the loan status, there is some question about who owns the models.  We’d like to correct this.  The museum is looking for Dr. David Roberts, or his family, to discuss fully donating the models to the museum or returning the models to the family.
