I'm thinking the opposite

Response to Re: Mudguard hinge area

Thats a great photo Manus and thanks for posting it. What i'm thinking now is that the mudguards are not welded on to those 3 rectangular areas. Thats why missing mudguards leave such clean breaks on the hull front. They are only welded to the top where the actual hinge is welded. The welds at the side appear to be just fitting guides so the mud guard stays straight in position but when the mudguard is raises those rectangular plates rise with it thats why the green paint is underneath and the paint line is below the rectangle.
I'm keeping an open mind on whether this photo is colourized. So far no one has come up with the Black and white version of this exact photo and until we do this has a very good chance of being the real deal.

My other thoughts on comments above is that the buildings in the background above the mantlet look as they do because they are dark gray slate and perhaps old wood or burn stained wood or in shadow not because the artist forgot to paint them.
Same goes for the headlight wire. The metal tube to protect it is gone and the flayed wire inside is a dark colour. The real world contains plenty of gray so saying something that looks grey has obviously not been painted by the artist is a stretch. Look at the quality of the work if this colourized, he wouldn't have missed out on a building.

Dave.
