As for the thrust line, I removed the prop and spinner and examined the motor shaft alignment with the fuselage. It appears that there is a small and appropriate amount of negative (down thrust) built in but not much if any right thrust. The left appearance seems to be just a misalignment of the cowl / nose of the plane. It should be OK but, down and right would be ideal. Easy enough to correct with washers on the motor mount but, I will fly it as is first.
Another concern that I have is the wing joint. The two haves fit together in a way that leaves a considerable gap with the fuselage. I recall a post early on where someone showed how they sanded it to correct this. There is a bowing in the middle which I will try to sand out that should take care of it. Anyone else encounter this?

I think that the cowl / spinner alignment is not really an issue other than in appearance. Which bugs me anyway!
