The Robin Hood 2B comes with a "unique"
set of four instructional videos. These are part of the
Robin Hood experience. Defiantly low tech and obviously
edited on the fly they provide a unique insight into the
mind of the 2B's creator...
To give you a flavour of the tapes, here is some sample
dialogue (from memory, we can't find it on the tape again
- a common experience):
presenter: " is it on..... cameraman"
(note the cameraman is a woman...)
phone rings, recording stops
presenter: " can you see this..."
cameraman (reluctantly): " yes..."
and on and on in this vein, for 12 hours....Other highlights
include the proprietors Rottweiller (who you will have met
on collection day, threatening any non authorised personnel
a.k.a. the local kids), If you ever wondered who bought
those £50 video titling kits from Dixons, then look
no further - lime green is obviously the default background
and if that doesn't give you a headache, the third generation
copy flicker on some parts of the video will.
All that said the presenter does have a certain presence
and I guess that producing a build Book is not economic
given the scale of the project - and we can tell you that
writing all this stuff up is not easy or fun.
All in all the videos are a useful, if cumbersome, addition
to the kit...now, where was that part on building the bonnet,
damn, the missus has taped Eastenders over it. Note that
know index guide comes with the tape, although several dedicated
2B websites have listings for different versions, see RHOCAR.org.uk
