Is it the United 777 ETOPS? If it is then that is one of the newers 777 models. You can tell by the main landing gear, if it'd pre-installed then it's the ETOPS one and one of the new 777 models

Actually all the UA B777 models from DW belong to the old mould. There is one that belong in the nwer mould but DW improved the nose further so all UA B777s are old mould models but they are nice though.

Alvin is right on the mold of 777. In reality if you get one of the UA 777 without prer-installed landing gears, then consider yourself lucky. This model is discontinued and sold out and may be worth a little money from a collector's perspective. Hope this helps.

No, the gears don't fall out if you don't apply force to it. GJ wings are just to stiff and straight looking to me. Look at GJ's B744 head on comparing it with a DW B744, you'll see it.
