Thanks again for all your compliments

I didn't update for couple of weeks, but there was a progress.
Continue to fill right side of a hall, i build two manual fire extinguishers.
One will be placed right bottom and the other left top.







Also i assembled quick drawing box with ammo shells.
On this side two types of shells: Armor Piercing (AP) and Armor Piercing Cup (APC). Also there will be third type on left side.
Actually, you can see the markings on shell case cups!

I must admit, that cylindrical and cone parts are not my strong side.
So i did as good as i could, but got a lot of experience on the way.
I'm good with the result, though it is not perfect.







Every shell is assembled from five parts.



The box itself contains upper hive part, that i socked with super glue for stiffness.
Also, you must assemble it in correct order - don't glue bottom side to walls, before you insert all the shells into cups.







And the parts are placed in their markings.

This is great Igor. You're a real purist. You could've made the shells from the wooden skewers and paint them, but you went the full Monty, 100% paper.
There is a saying in Russian, I am sure you're familiar with it. We don't look for the easy ways, we just overcome. This goes for you, in the most positive manner possible!
Just a bit terminology
The part that gets shot off from the cannon is called the shell (if it's containing explosive agent) or a shot (if it's kinetic or solid). The part that holds the powder that is ignited and propels the shell out is called a casing. The combination of shell, propellant, primer and casing us called round or cartridge. This is not by any mean coming to say something bad about your model.

Thank you for the explanations. Though I am into tanks, I still learn a lot of details and terminology.
And yes, my style is - make maximum possible from paper

Thanks gotham and Vinalssergio155


Switched to left side. Decided to fill the wall first and then the floor.


Fire extinguishers as part of engine compartment fire system. Though those are again cylindrical/dome shapes that i don;t favor,
I like little parts like this. You understand what it is and when you hold it in 1:25 scale in your palm - it's exciting!











Pair of regulators - one for power unit generator and one for auxiliary generating unit.
Sorry, but forgot to picture them assembled (you will see them later placed in a fighter compartment)








Some pauch, that i didn't find it's function and starter/generator buttons box











And last but not least - spare periscope box and choke lever











Glued all the parts to their markings. You can see now two black regulators in their places.
Fire extinguishers connected with tubes to fire system, that goes into engine compartment.
Choke connected via road.
