There are a bunch of KIDS at MIT that would have ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM building a old style Fission Bomb as long as they had the Weapons Grade Uranium. The Gun Barrel Uraniun Fueled Nuke would be relatively easy in it's design to assemble and to think Iran is not capable of doing this is laughable.
Being able to properly assemble explosive plates around a Plutonium Core would be more difficult but since Iran does not have Plutonium to work with it's a non-issue.
It has ALWAYS been an issue for contries that desire Nuclear Weapons to be able to get the Weapons Grade Fuel much more so than being able to recreate a 1945 U.S. designed Fission Bomb. One can look up such Nuclear designs in a Library.
