Comments from Youtube

sonnieandjacob : The bob Ross of models

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).

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

Jake Halvorson : Can you please make a winter one

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

Miniac : Luke, you're an internarional treasure.

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

Christopher Bettex : Time lapse is very very nice 💪🏻

Goofy Beaver : so relaxing to watch

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

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

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.

Glasseater : Another video so soon!? Awesome!

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!

Aidan Feeney : i sware i saw weres waldo!

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... :)

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

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.

Milton Unocinco : Awesome!!!!!

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)

Chris Kimbrel : I like your voice over videos better but nonetheless this was a great video. You can't produce them nearly as fast as I'd like. Eagerly awaiting the next one.

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!

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

MATP : YEEEESSS A TIMELAPSE DIORAMA !!!! I'm so happy to see that !!! Can you make the road 66 ? Desertic scenery with cactus maybe, harley davidson? LOOOOVE YOUR WORK ! YOU ARE AWESOME 😍😍😍

Kenderlyn Odhran : Gorgeous - I love your videos, and this one made me homesick for the area I grew up in...

EthanAshley : Can you try making an Underwater scene? :-)

Greg Smith : Luke, you are a MASTER! You have Australian scenery down! As real as I've ever seen! Love your videos! Keep it up!

The williford world : Wow that was amazing..... I am from India I can't believe a you can do it so well and easily... Founded your such a video in fb than i frequently jumped here for ur more videos. 😍💕💕

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

Alexander Gomez : Luke make videos more often make a model ship

Browntau : I'm just amazed at how realistic you manage to make that giant hand to pick up the 4WD! Thanks for a great video...very inspiring stuff.

Lorrie D Mussett : Mr. Towan I've watched ALL ur videos and saw you start the RR train track setup. But for the majority of your work it seems that ur focus has been individual diaramas. So I'm curious what ur doing with all of them. Are vol. 1 - 9 realistic scenes somehow connected? Are they all finding their own spot on ur original project being the train track itself? Thx 4 ur time. I'm a big fan in Texas, USA

FelixTubeHD : I didn't find wally but found 2 cute kangaroo

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

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

Jones Kirkland : Amazing as always! Love your works.

2chrono2 : As much as I love the tutorial-style videos and as much as I learn from them, these little timelapses are really really nice!

Wendy Griffin : Amazing! Very realistic! The way you apply that grass so it stands up is so cool.

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

Daniel Paiva : Vim pelos @filhosdagravida

Valdir Batista : Fascinating, beautiful work

WinterDragon 67 : I think it would be really cool if you did a bush craft camp model, I've never seen it done before.

Angry-Moth-Noises : I would love to see a timelapse of a jungle or rain forest! I really like watching these and you mineshaft one is my fav.

Paul Rippcord : I'd love to see a beach scene (water, palm trees, sand, umbrella, etc.).

M MW : You should try having a go at scenery from other parts of the world!

Blu Bot : amazing work, as always! I've been wondering- where do you store the finished pieces? i work in 2d art, and my work still takes up a quarter of the basement 😅

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