I think people underestimate how efficient the average 'Erk' (RAF WW2 slang for Groundcrew) was in 'Airmanising' an airframe. To quote the recently passed Tom Neil the Erk was "something of a specialist in reducing even the most streamlined form to scrap metal."

This was wartime. The aircraft were commodities, not the pampered treasures they are regarded as these days.

Most day-to-day maintenance took place in the open, fully exposed to the elements, by people who, whilst trained well, were not in the majority long term vocationally committed to their task.

You've seen too many modern day cossetted P-51s.

Besides, considering some of the more critical bugs/content shortfalls (spotting/visibility, theatre appropriate AI aircraft, map inaccuracies) the fact that people are making such a beef about this seems faintly ridiculous.

Hmmm....my canopies aren't dirty, I have no trouble seeing anything and my cockpits aren't low resolution. Maybe you need a new screen.
