Yes, one of the few AI pics that don't distort & does make sense.

How about a modification to the fuselage to incorporate a small door in the underside of the aircraft to allow cargo to be dropped?  Something similar was done with two Douglas A-26 Invaders that were modified for covert supply drops and operated by the CIA.  A clam-shell type door or better yet, a drop down ramp style door so that cargo could be delivered by air drop.

I reviewed my memories and, if you are willing to depressurize for the drop, drop hatch installations do exist, generally opposite the main door at the front of the fuselage.

An idea for a Learjet 35/36XR incorporating the inboard wing glove tank of the Lear 25G conversion and a similar thickening of the engine pylons to reduce interference drag.  And then an extended range version of that with underwing tanks, possibly with pylons again designed to reduce interference drag.

Why not go with a pair of "slipper tanks" (an example of which can be found in the old Hawk Models/Testors//Italeri U-2C kit) in lieu of pylons under wing and attached fuel tank?

Possibly.  I was looking at what could be done with the existing tip tanks in a new location.  Perhaps a very short pylon with a fairing so that the tank appears as a slipper tank, though you might have clearance problems with the flaps that way.
