Measure a real one as best as possible, convert measurements to scale, start looking for parts, it should be an easy one.

Here's a link to my scale convertor spreadsheets

LMK if you have any questions?

Real poles are usually about 18 inches in diameter, so you're going to need something about 3 inches in diameter, that's a fair sized lump of wood

Here in the UK (and also on the Continent I believe) they are more usually about 10-12 inches in diameter.

Another useful online Scale Converter can be found here

It even has a step by step procedure for converting BETWEEN different scales without going through 1:1. ie converting from 1/76th to 1/6th direct. Very Happy

Don't forget though whatever diameter at the base they all will have a natural taper.
