Can I replace the transistors in this LM723 regulator circuit with MOSFETs? Answered

I am trying to build a power supply capable of outputting up to 15V at 10A. The heatsinks I have are not suitable to use with the 2n3005s TO-204 case. Also I can get IRFP250 MOSFETs a lot cheaper.

The transistors I want to replace are Q2-Q4, Q5 I will not include because I only want 3 FETs because I only want a 10A supply not a 20A.

I checked the data sheets they are compatible and should work.
