Chernobyl#3 Rubble Cleaners (35903)
1:35 ICM via Hannants




One of the big problems with the clean up at Chernobyl was the fact that large chunks of highly radioactive parts of the core were in inaccesable places. They had tried robots to clean this up by the radiation field there electronics.  In a move called "human robots" men would be used to clear up this debris.  Many of them conscripts from the Russian Army who really had no idea of what they were being asked to do.  Using primitive protection suits and respirators  each man was allowed only 2 minutes working time as the radiation was so intense.  It has been estimated that a third of men who worked on the roof have died from the after effects of it.




This new set from ICM in their Chernobyl series brings us a set of five figures. four shovelers and a man holding a radiation detector. Also included in the box is a background scene and some chunks of core for the guys to shovel up.





Another first-rate set from ICM as a tie in to the HBO drama. Highly recommended. 


Available in the UK from importers H G Hannants Ltd.
