    Rex Hays of Sussex, England came from a family of artists and sculptors. He originally trained as a mechanical engineer, but worked as an author, historian, and broadcaster. However he is probably best remembered today as a professional model maker. Specializing in hand made models of Grand Prix race cars and working in multiple scales, he drew commissions from carmakers, Formula 1 constructors, Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, and the royal family, including the Queen.
