A Base Station like the AirPort Extreme will not appear in the Finder unless you have a properly formatted hard drive connected to the USB port on the AirPort Extreme.
If you do, the AirPort Exteme will appear under the SHARED heading on the left side of a Finder window. Otherwise, the AirPort Extreme will not appear in the Finder.
The AirPort Express will never appear in the Finder since it cannot support a hard drive.

I have a base station with a 4TB hard drive, which I had plugged into the Macbook without any issues, I have tried the hard drive into the back of the USB port in the back of the Time machine, but it doesnt show there either

The AirPorts will not support a USB 4 TB drive. 3 TB is the max.
