I'm staring a project and it will have cabriolet legs and I'm not sure how to layout or scale these legs so that the curves will look the way they should for the size of my project.

Here is a link to one of our members posts a while back. This was all I needed to do my first set. They were fun. http://community.woodmagazine.com/t5/Info-Sharing/

Well, you want to make sure they are in proprtion to the whole project.
There are many images of furniture made with those legs. Browse them and see how they compare to your project.
Once you find the one, than go for it.

There was an interesting class on this at WIA a couple of weeks ago. The answer is there is no right answer. It depends upon the style and scale of the piece. The presenter had a set of leg patterns with various degrees of curve and it depended a lot upon which type of piece it was going on.
Maybe try Google's Sketchup Library for patterns?
