Eduard masks?

Eduard makes some fine etched products. However, I tried their 1/32 masks on
the Trumpeter F4, and the masks weren't even close! Too wide in spots, too
narrow in others, too short or long as well. Have others seen the same
Masking is the least fun part of building planes- I've tried masking tape,
Tamiya tape, frisket, magic tape, foil, and liquid masks, along with
Parafilm, and none make the job easy. Now, the commercial ones from Eduard
are just as bad, if not worse than all of the above.
Am I missing something?

Personally, I don't believe in commercial masks...I use Scotch tape, cut into small triangles - I mask starting from the corners outward. Results are ruler straight and razor sharp. And cheaper.

My guess is that Eduard runs hot and cold. Their masks for the Hasegawa 1/48 Stuka Ju-87B were perfect. Dick...
