Same here on the blades. Initially I checked them as 'close enough' and threw them on. Then I actually checked them well. .43gram variance heavy to light, and beyond the resolution range of my through-bolt balancer. So right on the money. I'm almost afraid to paint them they are so matched, lol. I'll be using Tamiya paint on mine also, but the brushed on acrylic, lighter and more consistent application weight-wise.
I've found Ghost Grey to be a good match for the Eurocopter blades, I believe the 'light' version of that color IIRC.
