I have created a Lookup field linked to the document library which allows multiple files.

I am able to get the Title of the linked documents, but I can't find a way to get the url? How can this be done?

This is my Expand and select query &$expand=LeftBox&$select=Title,ModelType,ModelOrder,ID,Description,LeftBox/Title

LeftBox is the lookup field to the document library.

    async: false,  
    url: "https://MySharePointSite.sharepoint.com/sites/TransformationOffice/_api/web/lists/GetByTitle('ProjectModel')/items?$orderby=ModelOrder,ModelType&$expand=LeftBox&$select=Title,ModelType,ModelOrder,ID,Description,LeftBox/Title",  
    method: "GET",
    headers: { "Accept": "application/json; odata=verbose" },
    success: function(data) {
      data.d.results.forEach(item => { 

    error: function(error) {

Then You need to fetch the URL of document from document library as follows(Using document ID you got from first REST call):
