Thanks for comments guys. I worked on it on and off yesterday. My best guess is that it took me about 5 hours, maybe 6.
The color is actually coming from the directional light (yellow tint). Everything is is the default lambert. I didn't add any colors or make any changes to the default lambert. Rendering, I just did a software render with Shadows turned on, nothing special except I changed the shadow resolution from 512 to 1024. I was only doing it for the modeling aspect and not for the looks. Thanks for your comments anyway Jr. Who.
I had fun with it and will probably one day model the USS New Jersey with lots of details (I downloaded reference pics last night). If so, I'm sure I'll want to texture and light it properly.
Thanks again guys!
Don't be satisfied with what you can do but rather strive to do the things you can't do!
