TI.06 April Galactic Challenge: PawPaw Plantations
“…Way done yonder in the PawPaw Patch!”. Words from a No. American Children’s Folk Song.
About this creation
Just as The Insurgency was beginning to reach some kind of non-action steady state, the Marauder Shadow Net began a sting operation involving a so-called Galactic Imperium “Special Code”. Most Aurelian sub-factions fell for this and the “Special Code” and its decryption algorithm was subsequently stolen by an Aurelian Spy Ring. Aurelii are now busy planning the sacking and plundering of GI bases, while the GI are busy moving support forces from the bases they will allow to fall to those bases which will be protected from the Aurelian onslaught. Fortunately, the more rational minds of Darkla’s M3D Marauders, as well as, those of the MVCA and Havana Aurelii have not succumbed to this “Special Code” chaotic madness and stay committed to their own “Allied Cause”. They are making full use of this recent Aurelii/GI “Special Code” chaotic madness to cover their new operation on Fuyorai! They are forging on…

Overseeing “special” mushroom productions at the old Aurelian phosphate mine,
Darkla realized that the moon’s unique climate was ideal for growing pawpaw trees!
Indeed, she found them growing wild all over Fuyorai!
Darkla, escorted by Havana Aurelii, Ramon Romero & Migeul Montoya,
Stops to view…

A Wild Fruiting Pawpaw Tree


Recall that the pawpaw tree’s decaying fruit happens to be the ideal substrate on which to grow mushrooms. Recall, that when Dame Darkla worked as the GI scientist, Dr. Darkla, PhD., she had performed research to find this ideal mushroom growth substrate! Is it not then, more than obvious, that Darkla’s scientific mind envisioned the idea of wild native pawpaw trees being rounded-up and transplanted onto plantations? And this is just what her M3D Marauders, as well as, the MVCA and Havana Aurelii began doing secretly during the Aurelii/GI “Special Code” chaotic madness! They have even enlisted the help of the Fuyorai Natives!

Fuyorai Natives Working At A PawPaw Plantation

Did you note the irrigation system. Yup, broadcast spray for now!
Fortunately water is not in short supply on Fuyorai!

Being hardy and fast growing, the transplanted wild trees were fruiting within 6 weeks time! So now, the ‘special’ mushrooms being grown inside the abandoned Fuyorai mine can be done so on decaying pawpaw fruits harvested from the neighboring plantation. Who needs to get mixed up with the Aurelii/GI “Special Code” chaotic madness?! The chaos will be short-lived, but pawpaw trees live and bear fruit for hundred’s of years! So, that means lots of “special” mushrooms to grow and turn into M&M’s to sell for profit!

Is it simply Lady Luck or Darkla’s infinite wisdom and foresight that is causing
the M3D Marauders and the MVCA and Havana Aurelii to be riding ‘high’?
Perhaps it is a little of both? Anyhoo, riding ‘high’ is the only way to ride…
when you’re also in the business of growing ‘special’ mushrooms… ha, ha! ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Seriously tho... I know I Was alive during the 80's, but I never had heard of that cartoon... or I forgot?! Had to look it up! Ha, ha, I don't think I missed anything! :)

This MOC is, as usual, very cool and a bit disturbing. Seriously though, you leave the "Paw Paw Bears" out of this...

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- Haha I look forwards to the next build then! This will be judged very soon. Make sure you stay active in the group as it's about to get kicked up a gear! --Blast--
Thanks, Blast! I've enjoyed building to this theme, and I know there a few others that have enjoyed it too. I do hope it continues. I hope you get the support you need from the original idea guys! :)

Quoting George Marshall Haha, that's awesome! I'm really liking those trees. Great job, and please keep em coming! :D
Thanks George. I have two stories roughed out which I hope to use to compliment at least 2 future builds. :)

Hey, thanks Chris! As I replied to Joe... you may see more of those maracas in future builds! :)

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Love the Pawpaws. I have never had one but I have had a few 'special' mushrooms in my time. Maybe I will take a trip to see the local exotic fruit seller ;) Another great mix of pieces and ideas from you.
Apparently, there is a growing interest in the fruit in the US. The problem is transport for the fruit as US varieties ripen quickly... hence my references to using decaying frutis! The exotic variety is more stable for transport! This is the variety of PawPaw you will probably find in your fruit markets in the UK. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all those maracas?! :)

Culinary experts have made the claim that PawPaws are indeed, a complimentary sidedish to bacon! Thanks for stopping by Shifu! :)

Hey, thanks so much. Oh, I just realized that the pink shade I used for my photo borders is similar to the pink shading of the 'I made it' box! :)

Quoting El Barto ! Nice looking horticultural facility! But what about pests? Birds, rodents, etc?
Only the best for Darkla! Oh not to fear... bring them on... at least only after the fruit is near picking. Because... "special" mushrooms grow on decaying pawpaws and pests help that process! ;)

Quoting Silver Falcon I see someone else has been taking advantage of the Fuyorain natives as well.
So... is that a hint of future TI builds? I've only seen 1 from you so far! :)

Quoting Ian Spacek Do my eyes deceive me or is that a sand-green curved base-brick?! *jealousy* ;)
No need for jealousy! It's just med. green! But I agree, sand green would be cool! I recall you like olive too! Reminds me of my daughter who began liking green as early as 1 1/2 years old! She still likes it! :)

Quoting Dr. Monster Cool scene. I like your pawpaw trees, an interesting design with a nice mix of parts. I'm working on some plants of my own right now, so it's nice to see some neat ideas.
Thanks, I purposely made each pair of trees 1 trunk piece taller to get the 'tree' effect in the whole planation pic! Yup, there is a tad bit of logic to the maddness... ha, ha! ;)

Quoting matt rowntRee Darkla's infinite wisdom, definitely! Gotta love the piggies. Love those 8X8 grills on the baseplate, the colors work quite well together. Groovy trees too. Awesome!
Yup, 3 piggies of course! I think those grills are some sort of drainage trap so that any over-watering doesn't make the ground too mushy to drive a tractor thru it! Darkla is a bit ashamed that she didn't use drip irrigation, but the cost was prohibitive at start up! I believe pawpaw trees actually have greyish bark too! :)

Quoting clayton Marchetti Awesome work! I really like the way you made your Paw Paw trees . Great idea to use the cones and maracas for the fruit. I can't wait to see what Darkla's next move will be.
Darkla's mind is always networking! Don't be surprised if you see maracas showing up (just like tank treads) in any future builds, and not necessarily TI stuff. After viewing David R's latest... I could see Batman partying too! :)

Next 2 episodes are already drafted. I'll proabably start on the next build soon. I should do some spring cleaning first... ha, ha! Thanks for hopping by! ;)

Quoting Stephan N Great story, Fabuland minifig with included is a varied incidence. The PawPaw fruits are cleverly.
Thanks, I don't have alot of alien minifigs, so I thought they would make interesting and different Fuyorai natives! Ha, ha, bet you never have been so many maracas in one build before! :)

Thanks... and of course, Darkla is STILL working on her 'secret project' getting close to being revealed! :)

Quoting David Alexander Smith The writing reminds me of a twisted version of Dune. I always love seeing Fabuland and mini-figures interacting.
Haven't read Dune. My one daughter gave my other daughter the trilogy for Xmas tho. So, there is always the possiblility I may do so one day! I'm guessing it's my writing style? I try to pack as much new info in as I can and do a bit of review... sorta like a news piece?! I do think those creatures are FAB, and as time goes by they become more interesting. So, I've been, and will probably do so in the future, using them in builds! :)
