Treforest moldings; one of the pioneers, in plastic transfer mouldings in the world! If the models are early, then they could be extremely valuable. I remember seeing their works at the Treforest Trading Estate in '48/9, which was itself one of the pioneering industrial park/estates in the immediate postwar period.
Billie, I am new to this site and I realise that this thread is a bit old, but it is very much of interest to me.
Could I ask the following questions?
Do you remember where exactly the Treforest Moulding Factory was on the Trading Estate?
Who were the Jewish family who took over from I assume F. Winkler and associates?
When did the take over, change of ownership take place?
What year were you talking of in seeing the ships on display in Barry and how expensive were they at that time?
Any information you could give would be very much appreciated.
