This looks a bit odd to me. Do you think something has been removed from the top part?

Great pics by the way.

I agree, it does look a bit odd - exactly as you say Paul - it's as if there should have been something at the top.

If there ever was, a good job has been done removing it. I did try looking at it from all different angles (at one point practically lying on the floor), but not a hint of anything.
