Find out what size figure looks right standing under the flying bridge. From this you can work out the scale.

5" would be about 6'-0" at 1:15.

Very strange - all Billings kits are listed with the scale - the White Star is listed as "no Scale"???
So its a case of working it out as Dicky has suggested

I have also used 1/16 scale military figures and modified them.

These work out a bit short, but seeing as they are based on big soldiers, and not everyone is 6ft, not a problem.
