B-59 | Blacktron Armoured Personnel Carrier

Blacktron is back!


My latest build is a big, bad and totally black armoured personnel carrier.

It's based on U-59 Explosive Truck from Joe 90, a 1960s British science-fiction television series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson (the same producers of U.F.O.).

It's called B-59 where B stands for Blacktron, in fact this six-wheel APC is the new and lethal groud vehicle of Blacktron*.

Click here to watch the dark and dramatic video about the B-59 produced in cooperation with Motorcycle Filmmakers.



The B-59 presents many features, among others:

1) rotating turret equipped with two middle-range guns;

2) a little gun machine located on top;

3) fully detailed interior;

4) two hatches on the top of the driving cab;

5) an hatch on the top;

7) video-audio atmospheric sensors;

8) front winch;

9) back entrance (I really like the use of garage roller doors) .


The little ATV on the right is based on the Amphicat, a six-wheel-drive, skid steer amphibious all-terrain vehicle manufactured in the '60s by Mobility Unlimited Inc. of Auburn Hills, Michigan. The Amphicat was also used by Moonbase Alpha personnel in the television series Space: 1999.


*Blacktron was a subtheme of LEGO Space introduced in 1987. Blacktron is considered to be the "bad guys" of the LEGO space theme.

Thanks for stopping by.
