Default mini nexstar

I broke the motor mount off of a mini nexstar and I don't have the pieces to get the measurments off of. Does anyone know the dimensions of the motor mount box for it? Or know of a quicker fix than making a new one? I'm not all that crafty with wood. I also broke the cowl and I can't find a new one.
Thanks in advance

Ok I found the cowl but still need the measurements of a aftermarket mount that will bolt up.

I bought a few sets of these and I will measure them today for you. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Repair-pa...-/290807103016

I never thought to look on ebay. I will order those but I'm probably going to go to the hobby shop and get a piece of wood and try my luck with making one so I can fly it this weekend. What the easiest way to measure 2* right and down thrust?

I remember trying to use some HK and some GP mounts, I couldn't get them to work so I ordered those wooden ones. I've used it , but haven't "flown" it yet. It looks close enough to stock, wasn't perfect. I've never built a plane and don;t know how to measure those angles.

I've used a thin washer on the mount to space it before. Add more if it's not enough offset. Might want a quick test flight before you button up the cowl if the cowl is hard to install and remove...YMMV

Just call me X! (or Gary works, too.)
Another signature landing! Somebody help me find all the pieces...
