Default What Will be Done About the F-5's Cockpit?

The F-5's cockpit is still old, graphically. There's not even a normal map, there is weird lighting in the pit, from the sun somehow shining through the cockpit walls, and the roughmet not including a blue channel for metal. The diffuse still even has baked on shadows. The KA-50's and A-10's cockpits are really old, and they're getting a major overhaul, which is absolutely epic! The F-5 isn't as old as either, and is still more up to date. But still, the F-5's cockpit can make the brain trip when going from looking outside at the beautiful scenery, to inside at the very flat interior. It makes the F-5 feel very disjointed from the rest of the sim.

I can't/don't know how to even retexture the cockpit properly myself, without any normal maps to work with. If anyone knows how to add a normal to the F-5's pit, please let me know how!
Can Eagle Dynamics please give the F-5 an update? Even just a normal map would be great.

It would be great to see a bit of a makeover for the F5, it's such a fantastic aircraft to fly in DCS
