Two CRJ-700NG previews have surfaced in the Supercritical Simulation Group Facebook group showing off the front end of the CRJ-700NG.

From the couple of previews that the Supercritical Simulation Group developers have shared, you can see the level of detail and bump mapping that is included within this aircraft. You can easily see the circuit breakers that are behind the pilot’s seats through the cockpit windows.  Looking at the nose gear and main landing gear, everything is highly detailed, accurately modeled and where it should be. The reflections on the aircraft compliment that aircraft very nicely as a real world CRJ or any plane for that matter would have a nice shine to it.
