MiniArt 1:35 M3 Lee Mid Production build

Good day fellow paint sniffers,
As I said in some other topics, I am currently building the MiniArt M3 Lee Mid Production full interior kit.
It is with one of the interior components that I am having problems finding information about.
I looked through all books I have and searched online, but without getting any wiser.
What is it, and maybe more important: what are the colours?
It is a device which sits on the port side of the tank, next to the driver, in the sponson, below an ammo rack.
It might be a radio, but I have not been able to confirm this, let alone find an image of the device.?
Maybe any of you have more information?

Looks like some sort of comms boxes if not the radios themselves.

I agree with Johnny. I will try to find my Doyle book later today and let you know what I can find.

That looks to be a version of the SCR-508 radio.

Yep, it’s the SCR-508 radio in the kit. The set in the photo:

Changed the title of the topic, so I can put all my build complaints, issues and general muttering in here…

My next complaint is not so much with the kit itself, but that there is still a lack of suitable figs (I got the MiniArt ones, but for a full complement there are 2 lacking) which forces me to close up the engine bay, as there generally would be no reason to leave it open, unless some kind of maintenance was going on? A pity to close it…
