Well, some aircraft in the awesome open source flight sim FlightGear (flightgear.org) 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...
