Default Steampunk Protostar Build Thread

Hi, All,
I began this project way back in 2017, and am still working on it.
The build of this bird is documented in my blog linked below.

Rather than require you to muddle through the blog to find all of the various build posts which are intermixed with other topics, I will begin posting the individual links here on a daily basis.
You are, of course, quite welcome to browse through the rest of my maniacal ramblings residing in the blog, at your discretion.

Currently, the Protostar build has reached 28 posts.

The first two are sort of introductory, so I will begin here with the third installment.

Enjoy!

Here is the link.....

Ed, Iím looking forward to following the progress of your build. I bought a Protostar dirt cheap last year. It was one of the clearance kits at Hobby Lobby. Itís a great candidate for a steampunk conversion.
