Uniforms of the Hessians
Good piece here on the various regiments and their flags. I don't think I have seen anyone recreating Fusiliers for the Revwar or Seven Years War period. I'd be happy to be proved wrong but I suppose unless you have the metal mitre parts it isn't feasable. I had a copy of a Prussian fusilier front plate which I sent to someone in the US and the postman folded it in two to put it through the letter box - ruining it. The image above is from 1783 and depicts the Lossberg regiment featured below.
