[MOC] B-59 | Blacktron Armoured Personnel Carrier

Recommended Posts

Blacktron is back!

Hello from Italy! Tonight I share my latest build: 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. 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.


Back view and tank entrance.


The interior with many details.


This time thanks - to a friend of mine who is a pro-filmmaker - I produced a presentation video of the B-59. Below on YT.

I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by!

Nice, I really like that drivers' cabin arrangement.  The little 6x6 is also neat.
