A complete survey of all Duck stories from 1942-1967? That must have
been quite a work.

Actually we have an easier way to find out the official colours in Finland:
Aku Ankka's WWW-page and its KÄÄK-section. The colours are:
Huey-blue, Dewey-yellow or green, and Louie-red. As Kai remembered
this thing has been dealt with in an editorial page of Aku Ankka 21/1979.
