3 meter inverted v-tail tav from bird of time

HI this is my first post and first balsa build. Learned a lot but very happy with the end product. started with a bird of time wing and started by beefing up the center section a little with some triangle balsa on the ribs in order to hold the spars for the v tail. originally used the fuse from the sky hunter since it was going to be a pusher. but with the tail being so long and that fuse so short i built one from scratch in order to get the weight far enough forward to get a happy cg. this is what i ended up with. tell me what you guys think i am open to new ideas to make it even better.
