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'.
