Erik, you really need a new place to look for photos. I would suggest that you try the National Museum of the US Navy on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/127906254@N06/.

You'll find Zumwalt-class photos under albums on page 3. They have about 39 photos.

There are probably enough photos there to help almost everybody on this board.

Thanks for direct-linking the album!

Some of the better views I got came from here. There are enough good pics of her from 2016 at least to make an accurate drawing. The most difficult bit, and the part that probably needs the most attention, is the underwater hull. I did my best with what pictures I could find, but there are not a lot of good plan views of her that show below the waterline.

I have fixed it by myself about a month ago, but your drawing looks much better than mine ;) (just ignore 57mm turrets)

The revisit has been revisited! Now that we have good pictures of Zumwalt's upgrades, I could make this:

Her sister ships have not received similar modifications, perhaps they will in the future.

In the process of making this, I also changed some details on the 2016 drawing. Both that and the new 2019 drawing are in the OP.
