As comic book nerds are well aware, in the fictional Marvel Universe, the tesseract is an object that contains unlimited energy and is older than existence itself. So what did Howard Stark build when he got his hands on it? A bunch of crazy weapons. Naturally. One of these fictional weapons, the retro-futuristic Amelia-7 Fighter Jet, was dreamt up by product designer Juan Garcia Mansilla.

As Juan tells it, the project started out after he was intrigued by the the props used in the Captain America movie. The prop designer who worked on the movie, Daniel Simon, had an ability to imbue the films set pieces with an uncanny and almost historically accurate feel that really sparked a real curiosity in Juan. The result of that initial interest on the part of the Buenos Aires based product designer was this A7 Fighter. It looks just as much at home in old photos from WWII as it does flying in the skies decades from now, and while we know it’s just fictional, we sure are glad it’s on our side.
