Paasche? I don't think so.
Fujiosaki is where "The Factory" is from what my buddy Scooter told me.
According to what he told me it is an independent entity that builds airbrushes and sprayguns for Iwata, Olympos, Richpen, Peak, and many others.
I am sure Tamiya is certainly built there also as they look just like an Iwata.

how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. " Charles Spurgeon
