Spruce logs

Many WW2 Soviet tanks carried hull side spruce unhitching logs - I want to add one to my Trumpeter KV.

Anybody have knowledge/scratchbuilding experience in making such a spruce log?

I have some idea of how to proceed but would enjoy seeing any other efforts.

Thanks for all help offered,

JG

I've used wooden dowels, in the past.

I meant to inquire about BIRCH logs and it came out "spruce."

Thanks, Matt, for your info.

I'm playing with carving suitable width sprues to indicate hewn limbs.

I recommend using Squadron White Putty for hewn limbs, on dowels...

the dowels receive stains quite well. You would just have to paint the putty to effect.
