Luke Towan : If you found the tiny Wally figure in the video be sure to let let me know and see if you make it onto the leader board... There's still time!

Jutta Beckmann : Great job as always : ) How about some industry ruins that are overgrown by grass, bushes, shrubs and birches? Maybe with some old tracks etc. ? (Birches are the majority of trees in these kind of areas) If you dont know exactly how these areas look I recomend you looking at examples from postindustrial regions, for example my region the "Ruhrgebiet" (Germany).

sonnieandjacob : The bob Ross of models

Jake Halvorson : Can you please make a winter one

Miniac : Luke, you're an internarional treasure.

LookatmyBig Geoduck : can you make the same scene but just after it has rained with some puddles and mud ruts?

Jon H : I LOVE Your videos!! I'm not even into trains but your process is fascinating to watch and your detail is amazing! It just makes me happy watching. You keep making these little vignettes... I'd love to see them all in one video. Maybe you could showcase them one by one and one and point out your favorite details? Just an idea... :)

Ariana Cole : I would LOVE to see a tropical/Beach diorama! A place for the palm trees you've previously made!

Julius R : The only time YouTube recommended a random video that I actually caught onto and subscribed

Seymur Hemidli : gorgeously, my eyes again received a dose of pleasure

potatohero01 : hey i love your videos...n well i was wondering/i had a suggestion....if you maybe in the future do some kind of race track??....its okay if you cant just tougth it whould be cool too see it done by someone 1,000× better than me lol

Danny Holt : That wasn't Luke in this video folks! That was the hand of God making all things beautiful on this Earth. Fantastic video Luke! An absolute pleasure to watch as always. Thanks for the relaxation time. Cheers, Dan

Goofy Beaver : so relaxing to watch

Christopher Bettex : Time lapse is very very nice 💪🏻

Glasseater : Another video so soon!? Awesome!

GasCanister : Shoulda added some animals like kangaroos

Jackson Azevedo : *Good Job Man* *Congratulations* -Brazil

TeamEmeraldElements : This is great! I've been watching your videos for quite a while now and the other day I realised that some people on Instagram had been taking some of your videos and uploading them to Instagram without giving any credit. Just thought I'd let you know.

High lonesome Bluegrass : Hey Luke amazing job good buddy, I’m sure you get this all the time and have a ton of things to do. But I had an idea to throw your way. I’m sure you have heard of Steve Irwin. Well he has always been a hero of mine growing up. All the work he has done with and for all animals has really made me look up to him. Being from Australia I’m sure you have a certain place in your heart for him as well. Anyways, my idea would be for you to put together a diorama of him at at one of his croc enclosures at his famous Australia zoo. You’d be able to do a water source with the croc in it and him standing on the bank ready for action! Just a thought, Full video, no time lapse because it’s great to hear you explaining things and going into detail. I know these videos take a lot of time but if you were able to fit it into your busy schedule, I’d probably make your views jump way up. Look forward to the next one my friend. Take care!

Doramius : That was completely amazing. I hope you have the ability to continue to do it, but I'd be excited if you could upload these separate time lapse videos of your dioramas. I'd be watching them in a heartbeat, as well. Your regular videos only come out about once a month, and these time lapses in between would definitely bridge some of that gap. I try to recreate many of your ideas, and that time lapse did wonders. Your instructionals are so amazing. Keep it going.

Agung Hery Wibawa : Awesome 😍. Can you make Waterfall Scene Sir?

IMRROcom : Luke you are killing it! Great work again.

szonja urbanics : Please show all your scenerys in one video! That would be cool...

villafanmart : that quad-copter shot at the begining was beautiful :P

JareK Pawlowski : Wspaniała robota Proszę o więcej

B. Wilson : Hey Luke! I have a curious question, or questions. I'm making a large diorama (It's in imperial units, 5 1/2 feet by 4 feet). I was thinking about plaster cloth under shell with sculptamould hills/smoothing, do you think this combination would work? Also, do you have any ideas for modelling burned underbrush and trees? The diorama theme is a western US forest. I plan on modelling a small burned out patch. Any ideas or input from anyone else with ideas is appreciated!

Mitchelll Limque : Argh! I wanna know what your doing, do have videos that show the techniques used? Thanks!

1BCamden : Haha the only thing that doesn’t look real is the Toyota 4WD

Madness by Design : Towan, you've done it again... The time lapse was cool, but I like when you talk about your process. Your descriptions are always so clear, and full of useful information. Of course, having watched a lot of your other videos, I could tell what you were doing, so I guess I'm saying "Do whatever you want. It's all good!". Kudos!

Madness by Design : This was a fun one-off, but I think I prefer your excellent narrations. Even when you're doing something I've seen you do before, I seem to get something new out of it. Always great work... :)

Cecilie Pagh : Have you watched Paepercuts videos here on youtube? The coolest thing would be, if you two challenged eachother, to do a scenery! :D

Bobby Duke Arts : It looks so real with the sunlight shining on it. Great job!

Sean B. : While it was cool to see the time lapse, it would be nice to have the process explained to us beginners.

AbbiCat : * flips phone upside down * Hrm yea looks about right

Ashiok : Yet again another great video! Keep em coming Luke!

Kyaira Marie : When will you do a big project of a town or city with models?? Or slow motion short cartoon of the people in your towns. I think that’d be cool. You’ve done some small skits of the cars moving in previous videos

yow : would be great if you fix the model base to the table so it won't move around for timelapse.. Just my suggestion

Elizabeth Humason : amazing job :D It would be awesome to see you do a snowy landscape next :3

NickHey : Luke maybe a dustpan and squeegee would be great to collect up the left overs from the static grass application?

WeberModelRailRoad : Wow..great job looks so real.. thanks for sharing and keep up the great work.. Lance

dtiydr : 10:12 That is a drone taking those pictures over a forest somewhere..

syr200512 : I have a challenge for you Luke, can you make the entire if not just the city section of the map of Forza Horizon 3 (Australia)

FelixTubeHD : I looked up time lapse Australia and this was a complete match

Simon ROBERT : one day he will connect all his dioramas together and it will make an awesome giant diorama !

Marcelo Vargas : awesome, you actually make it look easy, and it's far from it, great diorama

Wazzzock : Where'd the commentary go?, its like the best bit

Constance Pawell : How long did this take in real time? And how long have you been making models? I've always liked them but they seem a little intimidating

G hunter 093 : Can you make a opal mine they are very common in Austrália it would be nice (i know you made a gold mine but Austrália is the biggest opal explorer of the world so yeah it would be nice.

ratled1 : You just need a scale Ronny Dahl standing next to the 4 x4!

Aidan Feeney : i sware i saw weres waldo!
