Zumwalt will receive her final fit (30mm guns, weapon control/management systems, proper radars, masts, antennas) after her arrival in her homeport of San Diego later this year.

Just to be the Devil's Advocate, I'm going to float this thread to the top of the bowl.

The Zumwalt class hulls are 180m (or 198 yards).

These three AIRFIX E-Boat lower hulls are 17.25" long.

They look suspiciously close to the Zumwalts.

Surplus AIRFIX hull lengths 17.25" = 1.4375'
Zumwalt real-life length 198 yds / translated to 1:144th scale = 1.375'

Add a sonor bulb, they'd be just about right as a starting point.

Unless someone was Hell-bent on doing a 1:96th scale build.

They're supposed to have 2 SH-60 LAMPS helicopters or 1 MH-60R helicopter.

Ooooooooooooooooooooh no no no - I've got enough projects on the blocks.

Any of you out there who'd like one of these lower hulls, PM me. We'll make a deal-deal.

Also, check out this guy's artwork https://lioness-nala.deviantart.com/art ... -655371654

Note: the Chinese PLAN's Type 055 is the same length.
