GraphicsArray: same width, different height ? 360deg-fly around a surface

``` Dear experts,

How can I force mathemathica41 to make graphics in a column of same
width but different height?
By default, mathematica gives two cells on top of each other the same
height, but arranges the width such that both cells fit in the column
width.
This results in a horizontal sequeezing/scaling of cells which I would
like to omit.

Here is an example:
Single output of both plots one after to the other just looks fine,
but when they enter in an GraphicsArray[], the automatic scaling
squeezes the lower cell width instead of stretching its height.

Playing around with TableForm[] or RowsEqual-> or ImageSize-> didn't
help so far. For all those of you that might have similar problems
with plotting graphics:
there are good support-procedures on the David-Park-homepage
http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/Mathematica.html
But I couldn't find a solution for my problem.

My general purpose is to generate an animated GIF, which shows a
360-degree-fly-around a surface plot, that is cut into two parts
at some z-value (this visualizes threshold effects on surfaces).
Interested people can get a copy of my *.nb

I carefully browsed through TMB and F1HELP for GraphicsArray-Options
(well I think that F1 is pretty poor on these specific subjects),
and of course also this newsgroup, but I couln't find the magic trick
sought for.

Thanks for your help in advance

Bye
Stef
