We provide a well--posedness analysis of a kinetic model for grain growth introduced by Fradkov which is based on the von Neumann--Mullins law. The model consists of an infinite number of transport equations with a tri-diagonal coupling modelling topological changes in the grain configuration. Self--consistency of this kinetic model is achieved by introducing a coupling weight which leads to a nonlinear and nonlocal system of equations.

We prove existence of solutions by approximation with finite dimensional systems. Key ingredients in passing to the limit are suitable super--solutions, a bound from below on the total mass, and a tightness estimate which ensures that no mass is transported to infinity in finite time.
