Hey folks, I have a Revell and some Hasegawa canopies as well, and they don't fit.  And the short nose early hood is the flay hood with no bulge, so they wouldn't work anyway.

Is it a length problem, or a girth problem Ern?

The Hasegawa fuselage is a little too wide; which means that with the rearward taper it also becomes a tad too long. The Revell kit canopy is correct for length and width (but is inaccurate for other reasons). I was under the impression the PCM kit was based on the Hasegawa kit's dimensions, but perhaps not in this case.
