I don't think they're trying to model our Solar System, but even if they were, the orbits described by the "planets" would be governed by the mass of the bodies, not their sizes.

You wouldn't be able to scale the model to the diameters of the bodies involved unless the densities were the same.

The only perfect science is hind-sight.
