The VMAR AERO SUBARU 40-52 SEMISCALE ARF ECS is a near scale rendition of the full size version developed by Fuji in 1964 and produced from 1968 through 1986. This is a beautiful aircraft sold worldwide in relatively small quantities.

Working with the design and manufacturing team in VMAR we've produced a very attractive model that is suitable for the full range of RC expertise ranging from beginners who are looking for their first low wing model but want something that is semiscale all the way to senior flyers who want a model that can be set up with flaperons and/or flaps. The VMAR AERO SUBARU is literally suitable for everyone beyond the raw beginner.

Given that we wanted the VMAR AERO SUBARU to look like the real thing, a cowl was a must.  In order to balance the great look of a cowled semi-scale trike model with the need to reduce complexity for those who want to "Buy and Fly" within hours, we have pre-painted, pre-trimmed and pre-cut the cowl for you! This is an industry first! We've also pre-installed the engine mount to fit most popular .46 two stroke engines including our hot new VMX-46PRO. For those of you who want to go with a larger engine, four stroke or different orientation we have blank un-cut cowls and firewalls available to allow a full range of customization to accomodate everyone.

The new VMAR AERO SUBARU 40-52 SEMISCALE ARF ECS utilizes the revolutionary Ultratough POLYCOTE ECS Enhanced Covering System.


POLYCOTE ECS is a brand new Enhanced Covering System engineered in Canada specifically for use only on VMAR ARF models!

POLYCOTE ECS is a complete proprietary system that utilizes Ultratough Polyester, enhanced graphics and detailing inside the covering and very minimal Sure Seal Seams to produce a totally fuel proof, high strength, lightweight, ultra durable covering.

POLYCOTE ECS is toughest polyester based system ever  used on a model! The graphics and detailing are inside the POLYCOTE... not stuck on top! No Decals! No Layers! No Strips! No Stripes! No Drag!

The new VMAR AERO SUBARU 40-52 SEMISCALE ARF ECS  utilizes POLYCOTE ECS to ensure that you have the best in covering and that the detailed graphics stays looking as good as new for the life of the model!
