I'm sure I'm not the only one.
So, there I was actually building a project I've had ongoing for a couple of months and it suddenly dawned on me that it would look better with a different color scheme.
Unfortunately one of the colors is in short supply in my collection. So, off to bricklink! I was fortunate, I was able to find almost all of the parts I needed to reproduce the MOC with the new color. Although the color itself is not new anymore, it is still a recent addition to the Lego pallet. Fortunately, it isn't TOO recent and has had a few years to accumulate lots of parts.
Sometimes a MOC just sings its color preference to you in spite of whatever design you had intended for it.
