Git View from within Sourcetree

Sometimes I need to see what a particular source file actually looked like x changes ago. Looking at the log doesn't give me the picture I need, I want to actually see the file itself without changing the current file. I can do this with "git show" command from the command line as in git show SHA:Filename, however I'd love to be able to do this within SourceTree. Sourcetree doesn't seem to offer this natively and I can't seem to get custom actions to work with this. Anyone have any suggestions?

I did that but I don't have anything in my custom actions


BTW based on the syntax need to run those from a command line without having to worry about path variables or what directory you are the parameter should be "-C $REPO show $SHA:$FILE" so this should work
