THIS masterpiece made for Kenny Easter's KS Easter fleet was also completed by Viking Trucks.

The first peak of this beauty was given at the Brisbane Truck Show and since then the truck has been snapping up awards.

Well-known American painter Mike Levallee from Killer Paint Airbrush Studio worked on the art.

Big Rigs understands the inspiration came from the KS Easter Pegasus logo.

The Pegasus has been combined with Mike's signature fire airbrush technique.

There's also custom alloy deck plates, a custom rear bumper, stainless steel infill panels and CNC-cut custom wheels.

If that wasn't enough detail, the Pegasus motifs at the centre of the hubs use real gold leaf.

It took 12 men working round the clock to complete the truck in a few months.

The end result is spectacular, it looks like the truck is surrounded in flames.

And it's fast become a hit on the truck show circuit, plenty of people are keen to get a look.

While we're not sure what the truck is worth, you can imagine this FH 600 Globetrotter would be up there with some of the more expensive.
