We received the following email from Randall Smith: "I saw the post on your website concerning the AH-56 Cheyenne and wanted to share this with you. I currently am producing fuselages and parts for the AH-56 Cheyenne. There are a couple of photos attached so you can see what they look like. The AH-56 Cheyenne kits are available in very limited quantities since they are hand laid epoxy fuselages made from an original fuselage from the early 80's. They will be listed on my website at www.vintageheliparts.com in the near future. I can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or through the email link on my website. There is also a build thread of one of the AH-56 Cheyenne kits on ScaleRCHelis.com under the current scale projects heading.
Best regard - Randall"

Apparently Schluter sold quite a few AH-56 Cheyenne kits during the 1980's. Although the company is out of business, many are still in circulation.
We are happy to see that Heliooldie.de is selling the AH-56 Cheyenne canopy, plans, and assembly instructions from Schulter. This is a great looking helicopter and we hope that more companies offer it in the future.
