I bought a new in box C3SS that was about 4 or 5 years old.  Looked at the 
bundled elements (each labeled as to what element it is) glanced at the 
manual and put the antenna together with minimal reference to the manual. 
Things telescope together, make sure you put all the rivets in a joint 
before you pop any and except for the folded elements, its hard to go wrong. 
At least for the C3SS, its not rocket science.  This was about six months 

A friend just got his C3SS.  Though I didn't read it in detail, the current 
pictures in his manual are much clearer, more plentiful and newer.

Could you build a C3SS just from the manual, in my opinion probably not 
unless you happen to have a lot of HF antenna experience.  While there are 
some dimensions, undoubtedly you'd run into things that are not noted in the 
manual since all the rivet holes which determine lengths are pre-drilled and 
the loading elements are already bent.
