3D Digital Scanning is a great way to document an artifact. We've had it done to 2-2-V-1.
The danger with Museum of Flight producing a scan of their Electra is that someone might use it to research NR16020.  The museum has an early Model 10A (c/n1015) that was later changed to Model 10E configuration by replacing the R-985 Wasp Jr. engines with R-1340 Wasps. Linda Finch bought the airplane in 1991, rebuilt it as a quasi-replica of Earhart's 10E Special and, with two male companions, flew it around the world in 1997. Although painted and represented as a replica of NR16020, it is only superficially similar to Earhart's airplane.
