Default Aero Craft Engineering FW190

Has anyone heard of Aero Craft Engineering kits? They were manufactured in Riverside, CA. Fiberglass fuselage and foam core wing and tail. I just obtained one of these kits and was hoping someone had information on the quality of the kit, what retracts to use and what engine is best suited to this plane. Thanks.

They were produced by Don Lien. I have the "A" model and the "D" model.
Both are excellent flyers.

I have Sierra retracts in the "A" model and Gene Barton gear in the "D".
The "A" model has a DLE 50 and the "D" has a Valley View twin 40.
Lots of nose weight required in the "A".

My Don Lien 190 D

It had a G-38, using a functional "scale" exhaust. Robart retracts.

I liked the kit.
