javascript regex to match specific directory construct

Hello,
I am trying to write a regex expression that returns true or false based on the directory passed in. For example:

var pattern = new RegExp("/^\/application\/modules\/?\/models/i");

console.log(pattern.test("/application/modules/admin/models"));

I've been at this awhile and dont seem to be getting anywhere.. I have tried substituting in * for ? as well as various other constructs. Can someone explain to me what IM missing here?

500 points for working solution.

How would I change this to make this work, as I was testing this I realized that there was something I overlooked.

var modulepattern = new RegExp(/^\/application\/modules\/[^\/]*\/models/i);

Example 1
modulepattern.test("/application/modules/test/models"); //returns true as it should - this is perfect

Example 2
modulepattern.test("/application/modules/test/models/test"); //should return false - but currently returns true (note the additional directory after the /models in the path
