From time to time I try to "invent" a new cooling system for my DeltaTower with E3D v5 Hotend
(see also http://shapedo.com/guin/fanductfordeltatower).Now I'm close to my aim :)

Instructions

Addionally you need:
2x M3 screws 30 mm long (for the fan duct and small fan)
and 4 to 8 M4 screws 15 to 20 mm long (for the big fans).

Normally you don't need nuts. The holes for the screws should be tight enough.

When you screw the long M3 screws at the lower end, the fan duct should clamp strong enough to the E3D v5 Hotend. On the same long screws you attach the housings for the fans.

I've printed all parts with a 0.4mm nozzle with low speed and 0.3mm layer height.

You have to aligh all parts yourself on your platform. You don't need support, when it's aligned correctly ;)

    Don't wonder why left and right housing is different. I was testing two different models.
