The grey one actually seems better because I just got the White Top as seen in this thread:
https://www.diecastaircraftforum.com...-571081-a.html

But what I hate about it was the fact they got lazy with the antenna. That antenna which was a hold over from the M model which clearly has had the disc removed from the top of the antenna base seems lazy. In addition with the multiple crooked wheels and slanted stabilizers...I think Herpa missed the boat to create a beautiful model.

Looks nice! I have the Gray "Dover" release...was thinking of adding this, but will just keep the smaller Gemini Jets 1:400 release (I never thought I'd say that)!

The gear and antenna are easily correctable.

My Dover Gray was fine out of the box, but having done tweaks, repairs/fixes, etc. on numerous other planes shouldn't be a big deal!
