On the Right Lines tells the story of Chris Rayward and his lifelong love of model
engineering. Being encouraged to save for a lathe when he was fourteen, the
book tells the story of the author's formative years, his early hobbies with
Meccano, miniature railways and boat building. It goes on to detail his
widespread experiences as a youngster in Australia and his subsequent technical
achievements as a qualified mechanical engineer.





The book traces his expanding interest in making innovative
engineering models, how his designs began to draw notice in publications such
as the Model Engineer and Engineering in Miniature, and how this
paved the way to other designs he supported and continues with his trading name
of Hotspur Designs. The author also details how this led him on to be
Technical Editor for the Engineering in Miniature magazine and how he
enjoyed that role for thirteen years.





Throughout the narrative, the author also reflects on the need
for a balance in retirement; how the social aspect of work is sorely missed
when left behind without a pastime that is more than just a transient interest
to sustain both mind and soul. He offers sound advice on how to maintain both.
