Mark.IV image source

Anybody know the source (book, etc) of this drawing?

All links lead to a now defunct ebay listing.

The size of the pic does not allow any measuring.

The drawing states it is 0.75 in to a foot - implying a 1:16 scale

So the drawing would have been 503mm long for an 8.05m long tank.

To fit that on a single sheet would need an A2 sized paper (420 x 594).

I've never seen the plan packs from Bovington but weren't they pretty large scale?

I have now been provided with a higher res image much more useful for 3D modelling.
Still no idea on the source though...🤔

It is not a complete set of drawings, but they do cover most of the important parts. I wish I could find drawings of the engine, gearbox and guns (from the male).
I purchased them five or six years ago, I contacted their archive person through email and they arranged to send me a PayPal bill, then sent me the drawings on a cd.

 yeah, that engine is a bit of a mystery.

I have been looking into other contemporary Daimler engines, as the cylinders seem to be paired in three blocks.

The pic in my post at least shows the outline of the blocks, and half that would bring your near the width.

I am surprised how little info I was able to find on the engine and differential given that it is very similar to the The one in the Daimler tractor too
