Default PNC: how tight is too tight?

I'm at the finishing stages on a DynaStar Lexxjet.

First of all, I want to thank Shrox for his beautiful and elegant design!

Now for the question: the PNC initially fit very loosely in the main BT so I had to wrap several layers of tape around the PNC's shoulder for a better fit. The fit is good when the model is in launch position, but when the model is in display--or horizontal--position the heavily weighted PNC sags in the BT and creates quite a gap at the top.

Obviously, I can fix this by wrapping more tape around the shoulder of the PNC, but at what point is the fit too tight for a reliable "laundry" deployment at ejection?
