find examples of delta canard with twin puller props between the front and rear wings.

I have seen discussions of this layout with a more regular wing shape canard. Has anyone built one, and is there any info on-line?
I found a saab viggen with a ducted fan, and several pusher designs, but no puller/tractor twin-prop examples.

This is an extension of my other thread about wing loading.

puller/tractor twin-prop planes is to be found.. but with props between canard and wing very unusual, mostly just in both ends of fuselage, or one of the ends.. (front/aft)
BUT, Miles M.39B Libellula, a tandem wing & canard prototype bomber did had it... props forward between the canard/front wing, and rear wing, where front wing had an auxiliary aerofoil/flap/elevator device, So not directly canards, but at least movable control surfaces.

I have subsequently found a few with the twin center props:
They are not as delta as the design I am working on, though.
It looks more like a viggen plan view with props stuffed in there, but keeping the tip fins.

The fuselage rear is more like the Libellua twin-prop.
They also made a single-prop pusher with the same name-maybe a modified airframe??
