It doesn't spoil the movie but it does remind you that they are sets and models.

I'm sure a lot of effort went into doing the Batwing, too, but that doesn't mean I would want to see strings attached to it when it's meant to be flying in the air. I'd prefer to see these things without knowing I'm looking at sets and fake backgrounds. The behind the scenes features are the place to see the artistry and detail that went into making it. That's the thing with HD. It magnifies things like that from the older generation of movies (and some of the newer ones, too) and their special fx. It can be a blessing and a curse.
