Will a 3" PML NC fit a 3" LOC body tube? I'm planning a 3X Orbital Transport upscale, and the PML NC looks like a better length than the LOC NC. Please post pics of rockets with this combo if you have them.

Thanks,

Yes. it will. I have test fitted the PML cone into the LOC tube and it works.

Im currently building an PML Inteli cone for use with my LOC Caliber. The fit is perfect but the OD of the nose cone is ever so slightly bigger than the OD of the tube, less than a mm. If I can i'll take a picture for you tommorrow.

Hope this helps

Mike is correct, PML and LOC tubes and NC's will fit interchangeably but their OD's differ. PML parts are a smidgen larger on their outside diameters than LOC.
