I would advice against this. Because of the conical shape of the recess in the underside of the stab and fuselage you would have to cut off a lot of material in order to be able to slip the horizontal stabilizer under the front of the vertical stabilizer. Guess how know. I had to build everything back after trying to do the same.

The only way this works is taking off the bottom front angle of the vertical stabilizer, leaving an ugly opening when everything installed.
