If the SRBs are 150 feet long, then that would be well over 300 feet. Would be something if they build it!

300ft, that'd be close to the limit of the VAB wouldn't it?

The VAB is massive. It held the 360ft tall Saturn 5 ok..so it would be fine. Gives you an idea how big Saturn 5's were. REALLY tall :)
Let's go and explore space.
