A made in Japan brand called Grip that was probably issued in the 70's? as I am unable to find any info about this brand. Also this does not come with English name on the package.

A 1/100 scale Japanese tractor trailer that comes with a bulldozer.

I got this model as a kid but can’t remember if it was given to me by my mother or aunt.

I’m glad that the original package still exist.

If you like semi with trailer and had limited space, this would have been a good candidate during that period. A great companion to the 1/64 TLV Neo Hino.
