Is there somewhere available a Pleyel grand piano scale design from around 1840 or at least just string lengths?

Can I suggest you try posting this question to the "FAN DE PLEYEL" group on Facebook. (This is a link.) There seems to be a lot of discussion of early pianos on various Facebook groups relating to specific manufacturers. I am a member of the Erard group which seems to have many keen members. I would imagine it would be the same with Pleyel. Hopefully somebody there can answer your question.

Please visit http://www.hecherpiano.com and contact the owner. He is an expert at 19th century concert grands and he told me that he has restored a number of Pleyels from that era.
