Can we have a model overhaul for Konigsberg?

I feel that this topic must have been raised by other community members from EU, NA and CIS repeatedly, however how Konigsberg looks in game at present urges me to make a new post about it.

To sum up, the current in game model of Konigsberg is flawed and perhaps needs an overhaul. Comparing with historical photographs and line drawings, the current model has many inaccuracies with the bow and forecastle section. Namely the bow seems to be a bit too short and plump in contrast to how it looks in photographs and line drawings, and a distinctive (and easily visible from most angles) rake and flare of the bow is completely omitted from the in-game model that makes her forecastle deck almost horizontal and parallel to her waterline.

There are a number of pictures available for reference and everyone can provide screenshots showing how Konigsberg looks in game at present. In fact WG's own Wiki alone has provided a number of pictures and photographes that exhibits the sleek lines, especially of the bow and forecastle sections, of the Konigsberg-class cruisers in history.

Personally speaking I have found those inaccuracies hampering me to wholeheartedly play this ship in game, and considering a number of models has been reworked and upgraded, I would like to make a humble request for the developers to consider a potential overhaul for Konigsberg's current in game model.

I hope WG updates some of the older models in the game.

There has been an announced one for American destroyers earlier this year though at present we have little information about how it has progressed. Also personally speaking I think the inaccuracies of Konigsberg is rather significant and should be corrected (and correction should has priority over improvements of details).

Also thanks for your comment after such a long time...

A worthy cause which WG’s art department should be concentrating on.

One of the few improvements WG could make that would make players happy, without doing anything complicated to do with game mechanics.
