Post Gemini 200 Westjet 737-800 (Some help)

Need some help regarding Gemini 200 Westjet 737-800.
I am not the first owner to this model.

My concern is does anyone know if landing gears are removable on this model?
I ask because it comes with landing gear covers but I can only seem to remove front nose gear, the 2 rear gears are really stiff and afraid to remove, they might break off. (I'm assuming if there is landing gear covers they should remove)
Just want to know if anyone has had this problem? I know Gemini landing gears very fragile.

Other concern is top and bottom beacon lights look original but they are clear..very light faint of red, but look more clear. Wondering if that's how originally they are on this specific model or maybe they have been replace, or just faded?

Overall airplane is really great, looks legit or original. Just a little concern because of its age, if its a model plane that some things are fading or if its been tampered with.

I posted some pictures to show condition.

Any answers, please help...thank you.

The landing gears are removable and the beacon lights sometimes fade. Mine is red jewel. I requested Geminijets a beacon light and they had stock of it when Nikky worked there. I sucessfully replaced it on an AA model. Just don't use too much glue.
Maybe the previous owner of this jet glued the landing gears for landing configuration. I recommend using a needle gently or some drops of vinegar.

Thank You for your help Autopilot1982.
Good to know beacon lights sometimes fade. I'll probably replace beacon lights later on or just leave them.
As for landing gears good to know they are removable. But they are really hard to remove so I won't try removing them. Looks good in landing configuration.
Again thank you for your help,
