Please do.
Mixed propulsion aircraft have a character of their own.  A few can be found in archives of BTS.
Back in the days (years) remember seeing 50s photo of F-80 with wing tip ramjets.  Picture that stuck with me.  Then came the 10-engined B-36 :-*
Mixed propulsion can be GB topic.

I have two piston engine aircraft builds on the go which will have Marquardt ramjets. Maybe I'll finish them as part of the Clear The Bench GB.
