The supplied crew were 4cm or 11/2 inches giving a scale near to 1/50.
The fittings on the tug are different scales and mostly overscale.
The originals look reasonable on the deck

Don't know where you will get any apart from model railway figures.

Thats a tricky scale for figures.... model railway figures would be 1:43 for 0 gauge or if you can find them, S gauge at 1:64

I would certainly be interested in sourcing S guage (or close to 1/60) figures for a Victorian warship I have started to build.  Most S Gauge sources appear to be from the US, scondand collectables, and non military

There is a list here of suppliers of S-Gauge figures that might help

Some look like they could be fun to add as a cameo on the deck :)
