First off, concerning swastikas, A2A is all about authenticity. And since you are flying a WWII German aircraft made by A2A, you should've known from the start that there was to be swastikas painted on it.
For the chromed textures, you'll have to wait for the paintkit to be released.
Secondly, for the "modernized cockpit", I don't think that A2A will release one. As I mentionned earlier, it's all about authenticity.
And lastly, you're right about the exterior model, it' S-W-E-E-T!
@swastikas: I know, I wasn't complaining, I was just asking for them to include another repaint without them as some (like me) like the plane, but don't want to fly around representing Nazi Germany (and I am German, so I can talk about it =P )
@modernized cockpit: not what I meant, let me explain:
=> I like popups if you use them for setting up your plane before flight - like you do with the "normal" A2A planes. But if the only way to use the ILS-indicator is to use a popup that is definately too modern!
1. What I meant is that one could setup a small display (vintage style) that shows the current NAV frequency/com frequency and 5 knobs (Nav Mhz, Nav Khz, OBS, Com Mhz, Com Khz) in some unused corner of the cockpit. I think this would far better integrate than the popup does right now and it would in conjunction with the following addition allow one to completely operate the plane from the VC without any popups.
2. add two additional switches next to the "autopilot master" for "wings level" and "current ALT hold". This would really make the popups obsolete.
Sorry for being unclear the first time, I hope you get what I'm going for.
I think these changes are not too difficult, so maybe AF could make them with the next update, I'd surely appreciate it.
edit: spelling for the pitot tube gauge is wrong, this is called "Staurohr" (it says "Stauohr" in the game)
