Hi,
    Have you had a look at Mobile Marine Models "Norton Cross" the hull and superstructure look very similar to the Eskgarth, the Eskgarth hull also looks very much like the hull on my Lowgarth. Hope this helps, Kingston mouldings did an Eskgarth hull but don't know if they are still available.
      Cheers,
           Peter.
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.

Deepstar go to the following web-site and look for the Edengarth tug 1:48 scale as she was the Eskgarth's sister down at Milford. http://www.kingstonmouldings.co.uk/home.htm

As I built a tug using this hull.
regards

Kevin
