Results from the 1948 Summer Olympics

I agree, great write up and no easy task but close to historical outcome is in theory only good for historical nations. No South African participation? Even historical medal counts for the top 5 nations are not that close to historical. For example, historical medal counts for: France-29, Italy-27, Great Britain-23, Turkey-12, Hungary-27. Not trying to rain on the parade but I don't think its very close to historical.

Talons 1948?

I agree that the original format seems to work just fine, if it ain't broke don't fix it. That said I'm sure there is some new type of event's, awards ect. that could be added. Perhaps awards for the best looking aircraft as voted by the participants or something of that nature.
