Instead of having big 10km balls into which we can bump, why not make the planets massive matte paintings off in the background that we cannot approach? The end effect would be better and look more realistic.

The matte paintings could be made to "rotate" to give the illusion that we are orbiting the planets. Sure we wouldn't be able to force orbit the planet, but is that better or worse than bumping into a planet the size of Cardiff's Millennium Dome?
