I assume this isn't the same Atlantis that produced various toy soldier sets in the 1970s of obscure and now highly collectible subjects like the Pharaoh's throne room, the Colosseum and Wild West subjects, amongst others?  I think they were Italian in origin IIRC.

Re: Atlantis Models releasing Aurora AH-56

While they've been around for a few years they've recently become better known because of their purchase of
old Revell, Monogram, Aurora etc. moulds the "new" Revell didn't want, and they've been steadily rereleasing
the classics.
Per their Facebook announcement next up is the Aurora 1/72 AH-56 Cheyenne.

It is the east, and the 1/72 AH-56 Cheyenne is the sun.”

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Definitely nice to see the AH-56 return to the store shelves.

No decent hobby shop near me so mail order will be my route.

If only Atlantis Models had the tooling for the old Renwal Skysweeper model...

Myself, I'd love it if they had the tooling for the old Renwal Cessna YH-40.

I was reading up on the old Aurora molds and it appears they never got the shape of the canopy right. The Anigrand kit was no better in that department. Anyone know if a properly bulged out canopy is or was ever available? Otherwise carving a mold and vacuforming one is the only option if you want something approaching the correct shape. Not trying to be picky but the correct canopy shape is really obvious.

Do you know that they don’t? They’ve been keeping the details of what all they got
close to the vest.

@Jon - Comment based on prior correspondence with some drone/mindless minion at Revell that replied with the statement "No, the molds were damaged beyond repair" or something to that effect.  If Atlantis has the tooling, that would be an excellent reason to rejoice loudly while running naked through my back yard.
