How can I see to which position my radiator is set to in the 109 (E especially)???

AFAIK there is no indicator on any of the planes, so the only way to find out is to look at the radiator flap (which is usually not possible) or change the radiator setting and read the HUD message.

You can watch the state of it looking out from the cockpit at your wings in the 109. You need a external view to do that in other planes. There might be some that even with an external view you can't see it, I believe, but I'm not sure. There should be something in the cockpit to tell you, as well as a way to go backwards, but there isn't at the moment, I'm afraid.

Thx for the answers! I agree that there should be something inside the plane to indicate the position. Like this it kind of forces you to use exetrnal view or text...
BTW what is the downside of flying with a fully opend radiator?

In the Bf-109K4, having the radiator fully open reduces top speed by about 55km/h. However, low speed manuevering or climbing is not affected that much (there is no noticable effect on sustained turn time or climb rate).

Other planes should have similar results.
