on german planes the throttle was pulled back to increase rpm and power not pushed forward like all other planes.
(according to the book: Aircraft of World War 2 a Visual encyclopedia). not a major problem but i would like it fixed please.

I heard that story once I think. But I'm not sure if it's true. It seems very unnatural that way.

Also, consider that you have many external experts. WW2 Pilots, and people who sat in these things in the museum working on FB. I would think that one of them would have picked up such a glaring error.

This is flatly wrong
The french and italians had it that way, but not the germans.
That was the cause of many accidents when the Luftwaffe used italian and french planes for training.
