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
