Oh, apparently I didn't express myself clearly on this issue. Sorry!

By "overspray" I meant that the original colour would be red and upon that (in places) there would be yellow "overspray", i.e. "spraydust" not actually meant to be there.

I also don't think that the painters would take the extra time to deliberately spray down in between the wheels.

Taking into consideration that the insides of the wheelrims would be worn blank and shiny and the actual gap between the wheel would be red + possibly yellow + grimy & muddy, the wheels are quite a piece of work on their own...

I nippa-nappa remember seeing the pic. Taken from behind on some kind of ferry? Don't remember the size of the box.

I guess the most important modifications were made first and the less important ones when time permitted. That's why we have to check our references... ;-)
