The camera position in the last photo is just above the top of the belt. That would favor distortion in the opposite direction of your example, which strengthens the case for the rise being less than 10". Since we know where the four corners of this plane are, we can also draw lines to mark the center regardless of the camera. The intersection is pretty close to the top of the black panel meaning around the same measure above and below. The black panel even intrudes above the halfway point a bit. If the same result can be reproduced in other photos of sufficient resolution, I think we have it.

(Not counting the mislabelling of the measurement units in the Manual for the sonic screwdriver - cm vs. mm - I believe you felt the bulk of the dimensions for things in the Manual were very close to what they should be.)So maybe this will help determine the rise of the panels?Dino.P. S. Gene, it's nice to see that I'm not the only one to get one of Tony's "Master-esque" responses! Though, if I am wrong about Tony's belief in the dimensions from this Manual drawing, I have a feeling I'll get another of those responses.
