I've come up with a very simple way of grouping of scale fingerings. I'll post it as soon as I find the file in my archives.

Per Sapientiam Felicitas!

In g minor, scale degree 6 is E-flat, which you use the finger 3 on...

Bb major:
Right hand - 4, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, (4.. and the cycle goes on)
Left hand - 3, 2, 1, 4, 3, 2, 1, (3.. and the cycle goes on)

g minor (no difference in fingering between natural, harmonic and melodic):
Right hand - 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, (1.. and the cycle goes on, or 5 when the cycle stops)
Left hand - 5 if it's the start or end, otherwise 1, 4, 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, (1.. and the cycle goes on)

a minor - same as g minor
c minor - same as g minor
d minor - same as g minor

F major:
Right hand - 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3 (1 and the cycle goes on, or 4 when the cycle stops)
Left hand - same as g minor

I believe that this is the standard fingering. Hope it helped!
