I have found a method of fixing the scaling and thought I would share my findings. The method was found here.
The command works with VMware workstation pro 14.
The login screen will still be small. Once logged into your VM and in full screen mode, set your display resolution to 3840x2160 (16:9) and set the scaling to 200%, then type and run the following command in your terminal
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2
When you now switch from Full screen mode to Console mode the sclaing of the VM does not change.
