Those parts look very clean, like they are right out of the box. 
 
So I decided that sleep was secondary and made this in CAD, it can mount on a 140MM fan...

This is in my slicer application, note that I use a big .8mm nozzle as opposed to the standard .4mm, it is indeed printable, would be better at the .4mm.

If you want I can send you the file

Hey!  that is very generous of you! Many respects from me being a major Nighthawk fan myself, seen therm here in The Netherlands at an Airshow in Eindhoven back in 1997.

The Black Stealth Jets of America they were named here.

As the 3D print diagram goes, my system uses 80mil fans at max size, but also the problem is I don't have a 3D Printer left alone anyone in my area even tho I don't even know how they work sadly, looks very nice tho,
Nighthawks were the best Stealth Fighters of all time and they left service way too early, just my thoughts tho, can't say that the Lightning II is any great either, mistakes have been made it seems.
The YF-23 Black Widow II was superior to that of the YF-22 Lightning II which became the F-22 Raptor.
it's strange how outcomes kind of turned out, as for the Hobby master F-117A  Nighthawk model  still trying to find a good deal, no luck on that yet, but that won't stop me from hunting down the right model

As for the parts I always clean them properly or let them get special Deep cleaning treatments, soap & hot water is used and then they are placed in a vacuum drier set to 50C for 24 hours.
Maintenance of 20+ year old parts is extremely vital, things like capacitors are also replaced and renewed if needed to be, all standard procedure, but very important if wanting to use old parts for every day use.

Nighthawks were the best Stealth Fighters of all time

Until they open the bomb bay doors or bank to hard. Their stealth envelope was incredibly small compared to newer craft and took incredible skill to fly witch is why it was replaced.

Yeaps and with these date correct parts you can relive the classic 1990's all over again 
Those years were my favorite and most memorable when it came to epic PC games & PC flight sims.
Hence why I love bringing these old relics back to life, just loads of fun and the dreams just never end this way.
DosBox is boring using the actual date correct hardware is far more fascinating imo.

I don't blame you, the night hawk is a lot like the p51 when it comes to its fallowing. What I mean by that is, there are better craft out there but the nigh hawk takes the show. Its a grate air craft for its age.
