Jeff Luff grew up near Goodwood during the 1950s and ‘60s. Forming a lasting impact, many of those cars he saw racing at that time have become the focus of these models. Formally trained as an architect modeller, the bulk of his career has been producing special effects models for film studios, as well as turning his hand to motorsport replicas.
