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,
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.
