I would like to have a support system where you can't see anything under the truck and it looks like its just standing on its tires. Not sure how to go about this, was thinking dowels through the tires and then a platform connected that for underneath the rest of the truck. Just don't know if theres any other ways or what anyone else have done for a support system.

Thanks for the help in advance.

I recently did a car and used a small board in the center of the car and placed the car cake board on the wood. The board was maybe 3" wide and about 3" short of the entire cake length, covered the same and the base cake board.

Make sense?

I've used 1/4 inch square dowels as axles, then a little block below (to lift up the axle) and then the truck base board on top. The little blocks are hidden behind the wheels, although I painted them black so they wouldn't be very visible but if you did look under, you'd see axles and then a board

I realize this is really old, but I am doing an eighteen wheeler for an anniversary cake for a couple. My thought is to roll out and cut gum past to the shape of the trailer and sleeper cabin tractor let it harden then use modeling chocolate or more gumpaste for the tires under the gunpast sheet. The cake will be a full sheet in length.
