Airbrush splatter

I have a Paasche airbrush coupled with a Iwata compressor.

Whilst trying to use Tamiya acrylics, I get terrible splattering.

Paint is thinned to approx. 60%, and am using very low pressure. Changing pressue/thinner ratio doesn't make any difference.

Could this be caused entirely by a (very slightly) bent needle?
