Need help combing script

Need help combing script

Good afternoon all,

I plot pdf's from Autocad and depending if it's from model space or layout I get an output with Model (1) or Layout (1). Currently I am using following script to take care of stripping Model (1) from filename

folderspec = "C:\Dave\"
strRename = ""

set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set f = fs.GetFolder(folderspec)

for each f1 in f.files
Filename = folderspec & f1.name
NewFilename = replace(Filename, " Model (1)", strRename)
fs.MoveFile Filename, NewFilename

msgbox "All Done"

How can I combine above script to take care of Layout (1) if included in my directory? I would like it to strip Model (1) and Layout (1) if I have that part of filename in my directory. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
