I just play the hatches as though they dont exist- they would smash into anything that would block them, possibly destroying it- since they arent part of the vehicle (ie you cant deploy off them or destroy the vehicle by hitting them), they arent scenery or anything else.
If you simply ignore their presence then all the problems disapear (including closed door pods- doors dont exist so you can see right through as normal).
Though once again I think this is a silly case of GW models getting too big and aesthetics taking priority over the actual playing of he game- the idea of having to carry around 7+ pods to make a proper drop pod list is not something that fills me with delight (oh how I miss 2nd ed).
