Thanks Gotham, David and Michael.
Continued with armored radio box.
A lot of lamination.







Box is ready and attached to turret













Fun fact: in early versions of Sherman, radio set was located inside the turret. When Sherman was modified with bigger 17 pdr anti tack gun, it was so big that breach block inside interfered with radio set. So the rear of the turret had a rectangular hole cut into it and radio was put into armored box as an extension.

That final photo must have been tricky.
Somehow you captured the interior view, showing how the radio appears from inside.
Nice camera work.

I like "Box is ready..."...basically it looks ready to use! That looks so real. Loving this...

A truly fine tank, the armoured box with radio contained will also have helped with balance of the turret. Larger guns on the front of the turret without a counterbalance can lead to the turret 'locking' while traversing the gun which is a problem.
