Just one thing, the manufacturer of the model is not Dragon USA. Dragon USA are just a distributor in the USA for kits manufactured by Dragon.

And I must be doing something wrong as I can't find many diagrams online of the Z Series of destroyers...

A lot of ship model manufacturers omit rigging diagrams and the modeller is on his own there. In the case of the Z39, German destroyers shared a lot of commonalities. A quick Google image search will provide drawings and photos, maybe not of Z39 in particular, but of the other similar types, and use those rigging styles as a guidelne. If there are no references available for the Z39 it becomes a moot point, as who can say what is 100% right or not?
