In the ship editor click on a single vertex (one of the three edges of a polgyon). In the upper part of the window you will see the 'Vertex: Height' dialogue become available. That, just as it says, determines how high that certain vertex is supposed to be. The relative heights of polygon vertices make for the shading.
An example: you have a wing on your ship, select the vertices that are connected to the fuselage and set their height to 20, select the outer vertex and set its height to 50 and it will be shaded to look like the wing has dithedral.

You got to do way worse than asking a question to be called names around here, don't hesitate to ask, suggest or discuss.
