Default WWI aficionados & Builders

I am going to new york for the first time ever and I will love to go to this warbirds show near that city which is basically done with World war one fighters and golden era planes. I remember reading about it long time ago, I even recall a RC get together for WWI scale tournament ! but I just can remember the name of the town or the name of the location, can any body help ??
I am currently flying a Balsa USA Dr.1 and will love to take photos so I can add more scale detail to mine !!

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have a highly modified 1/4 Flair kit. I made the outlines more correct and added many scale details. It's covered with Solartex and latex house paint. Hitec radio and Zenoah G-23. I got plenty of pics if you want to see them.
