Aerofoil templates?

I built a 60'' electric sailplane and it was quite successful (I crash landed it on its third flight, though)
Now, I decided to step into powered flight, I have a long-time interest in 'flying wings' so I'm planning on building one. I did some research and found that MH60 airfoil is specifically improvised for tail-less aircrafts, where/how do I get the aerofoil templates? I found a site that provides the aerofoil coordinates in XML format, but I don't know how to get the profile/shape of the foil using those coordinates and since my design-in-mind is swept-wing design, I'll need different sizes of the wing rib templates. I'm not too sure about how to accurately scale the aerofoil templates to different sizes, any special softwares to do it?
