While I truly dont know if it can be fixed my guess is no. I hate not being able to read the gauges too. Some come in handy like pressure, temp, fuel. Though I must admit some planes have better visibility than others as far as gauges go.

Maximum nose down trim is the only way to be able to see your compass while in level flight, but I warn you, there are some drawbacks to this course of action...

Several of the Soviet birds have even more thoroughly obscured or hidden compasses or important flight instruments too. It's just that Oleg and his team have a very specific idea of how a cockpit should be modeled and where the pilot's point of view is located within the cockpit.

In these cases, the Speedbar is your best friend.

just do a quick left roll right roll and you can get a glance at it

the orange T shape on the face should tell you the heading pretty accurately without actually needing to read the numbers
