Default DD electric motor mount ideas? Glow to electric

As the title says I'm converting my DD from glow to electric. The picture is the of the motor I'm going to use. Anyone know any type of mount that will work? I've seen some 90 degree mounts that then have rails that go back but I can't seem to find them to fit this motor. the motor is a Turnigy 3648 and will run on 6S. I thought of making a mount out of some laminations of g10 material but if there's anything commercially available, please let me know. FWIW, the front of my DD had a Jett 46 on it.

just use 1/4 ply and glue it to fit on the flat leading edge near the motor. make sure the ply will hold the motor then fit to the leading edge.
