Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anybody know a good (short) reference which explains how a top-quark condensate acting like a "bound state Higgs" generates both fermion and W- / Z-masses?

There are a number of variants of what you are looking for:

Look for top quark condensate or Topcolor models.

A good set of lectures here:
arXiv:hep-ph/0203079

or perhaps read one of the original papers

Minimal dynamical symmetry breaking of the standard model. Phys. Rev., D41:1647, 1990.
