Did a little searching and it doesn't look like there was much of a standard back in the 1940s.

Peter,

I just wanted to add: great drums! I really like the way you made those. I'm saving your technique in case I ever modernize my layout.

Thanks Michael for the information, sooo that means my drums are legal. :glad::2t::thumb:

Looks like there was no real colour co-ordination of drums in the 40's 50's and 60's, 
that's probably why I can't remember what drum was used for oils or kero.

I think I will be repainting my drums to basic blue, black, red and yellow just to fit in a bit better.

.......................Peter
