She's been de-virginized!! :) Like the heat coming off the engine thrust exhaust. Classic old plane!

Not so much a virgin anymore, I'll have a go around the world inside her though anytime!

Great pic! To Finland visitor, yes you're absolutely right - the same reason you always see aircraft in the factory with the rudder fully painted. It's a balancing thing.

Looks like quick spray to cover titles as the new owner is not allowed to use them.
Is painting the rudder more delicate job? It's not painted so i assume it requires more time and effort not to affect it's balance or something...

Ha! Looks like she's having an identity crisis :)

It seems they lost the paint just in the middle of tail painting.
