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

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...

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.
