Default A38 OHC Model Gas Engine

I apologize in advance if a thread about this engine already exists but my search turned up not much.
A38 OHC Model Gas Engine
Anyhow, question: Does anyone have info on this? I like the way it looks because of the belt drive and the exposed rockers. Might be nice in an old-timey biplane or.....Anyways, can't really find much info on it.
For some reason this enterprise seems to be based somewhere in Europe since I can't find it on any websites of hobby retailers like Horizon or Tower and such.....Any dealers in North America?

I would not want to be the Guinea Pig on that one . It looks pretty but.......looks can be deceiving when it comes to new no name engines . Now if I had some cash to through away I might get one to test on a beater plane before I put it in a nice scale plane I had just spent hundreds of hours building .

My feeling exactly. The thing looks pretty but isn't cheap (at least by my standards). I don't wanna be a guinea pig on this one either. There's a few videos on Youtube on this engine and also a thread on one of the other forums but the latter includes experiences of just 2 guys and no long term reports about it's long term durability and so forth.
