Sadly, the fifth Interview with Corgi's Adrienne Fuller was never to be published.
Many of you will be interested to hear that following her recent departure from Corgi as a result of their restructuring Adrienne Fuller has written to advise me that she commenced employment with Oxford Diecast as Product Manager on 1st June.
She tells me ".....have known MD Lyndon Davies for many years, from when I worked for Corgi in Swansea and it will be great to be working with such 'collector' enthusiastic people again.

Corgi's range research manager, Adrienne Fuller, revealed how the idea to stage the 'little and large' show nearly backfired.She said: "With both companies enjoying 50 years in business I thought it would be a really nice fit to have our new 2006 Mercedes-Benz Actros Megaspace release in John Mitchell colours.
ADRIENNE FULLER CORGI CLASSICS
One of British Model Buses contributors has informed me that Adrienne Fuller of Corgi's design and development department has left the company.
writes: 'It is believed that she
is one of 13 people made redundant following the merger of Corgi Classics
and Master Replicas
Adrienne was instrumental in bringing the OOC range to market and had been with Corgi for some 20 years.
Assisted by a small group of independent advisors she
almost single handedly produced the designs for all the OOC models since launch along with the 1:50 buses, Classic Trucks, Vanguards and other die cast.
The company is surely going to miss her
talents and one now wonders, following her
departure, what is the future for Corgi models buses.
Finding reference for such models is certainly not easy and we have to agree that despite a small number of faults (mostly because of problems in Chinese production) the range has been superb.
We all wish Adrienne success in the future and hope she
can offer her
undoubted talents to another model company - preferably buses - to the benefit of fellow collectors'.
Adrienne Fuller, product manager at Corgi first made contact with Ray whilst researching suitable buses for Corgi to recreate in miniature.
explains: "Each OOC model is researched extensively before production.
