Well, some aircraft in the awesome open source flight sim FlightGear ( do have moveable cargo (and passenger) doors, so somebody must have modeled them (at least the 3D aspects). In addition, there is a "walkaround" mode which allows the user to move freely around the aircraft. Last but not least, you can have malfunctions in aircraft systems. I am not sure, however, whether the obsession with detail has led any contributors to add a "cargo door latch malfunction". I wouldn't be too surprised, however...
