While I'd love to agree, the spinners are all red looking too. Perhaps you have better resolution or something, but those DO NOT look very cloth or nylon at this position. If you can prove me wrong, I'd be encouraged...

Prop covers also cover the spinners...
From my point of view the propeller baldes certainly do look like they have covers on them. Look at the blade pointing up and away from you on the port engine - you can clearly see ripples and undulations in the fabric. You can also see ripples on the fabric around the spinner on that engine... The surface of the actual blades/spinners should be much more smooth and aerodynamic than it appears on the photo.
