my Earth's radius is 13 units (a tad large), the on at 3.5 units is placed 700 units from Earth.
... it is so small that it is hardly visible.

I am not understanding where you got your scales. Just popping out the calculator real quick, and looking up the sizes and distances involved, what I got for a 500 Km scale is as follows
Diameter of Earth = 25 units
Diameter of Moon = 7 units
Distance between E and M = 714 units
IMO you would do better to use a larger scale. I could be making a mistake here, but that is what I got anyway.

It puts the magnitude of Apollo in focus.
The distance they traveled as a first jaunt from Earth is staggering.
