Unable to find some RB parts in LDraw. Maybe in 3rd party libraries?

Question

After looking around for an answer to this, I think this question is most likely for @Simon.  In the model I'm currently working on, I've been coming across a lot of parts that have a rendered image on Rebrickable, but I can't find the virtual part either in Studio or LDraw.  This one, for example.  Because there is a rendered image, I know there must be a 3D model of the part somewhere, but I'm not sure how to find it.  

Thanks.  --cj

Simon is currently on sick leave, we don't know when he will return. Unfortunately, I don't have much knowledge of LDraw

Just thought I'd answer my own question for anyone else who might stumble across it.  It seems that these renderings are coming from LEGO.  A little more about it here: https://forums.ldraw.org/thread-23838-post-35385.html#pid35385

I haven't found out if the 3d object files behind these renderings are also available from LEGO somewhere.

You can find the husky model (undecorated) on this page: http://www.digital-bricks.de/en/index.php?site=1392

I've found a few ldraw files over the years on that site that weren't in the LDraw repository (official or unofficial).

FYI, if I'm looking for an ldraw part I often just try to google it. For example, for the husky if you google 'ldraw 16606', that website is the 3rd result, at least for me. I've often found ldraw files for parts in out of the way places on the web on occasion through google.

That's helpful!  I hadn't come across that site yet and it has a couple of the parts I need.  Thanks.
