Mine is 8 5/8"

Yeah now that you mention it does look a little small on the roof of that SUV.

hmm. can you measure your drawings, are you going by the inside of the line, middle or outside of the line? i wonder if my drawings are bigger???? do me a favor, on your drawings on the side view, measure the length from front window edge, to the back of the rear window, mid line.

Here is how the side view sits on the fuselage. I did leave a small amount of extra material to shave off for final fitting of the canopy but it fits pretty close.

Man, carving a canopy plug for a plane just from measurements seems like a effort in futility to me. No way would I even attempt it. Good Luck and I truly mean that!! This plane is awesome.

if you need cheaters just do the speed brakes and have them close over center ,it will make ramps up into the fuse ..you could shut them once your flying to free up the drag.
