Why my airbrush sucks?

I'm airbrushing interior for Porsche 959 right now!
I Mixed 1 part flat buff with 1 part glossy white with hint of orange to get tan leather appearance. Paint was thinned 1:1 with Tamiya X20A.
But I can't get flat surface with airbrush! I tried spraying from different distances and angles, wide/narrow spraying cone and fast/slow hand movement. In both cases I've got orange peel surface!
What I'm doing wrong? Not enough thinner or low air pressure?
I use cheap Testors airbrush with propel. can

Try lots of little coats instead of one heavy coat.
